Interview Of Luc Besson About The Fifth Element
Editing is the second stage of writing for me. In the construction of a screenplay, you place words in a certain order; in editing you do the same thing, you string shots one after the other to give them a dimension, an emotion. You use both of them in the same manner. If the screenplay is the menu, then filming is fishing, hunting and gathering. We don't cook, we bring back fish and game. Editing is the biggest kitchen there is.
