Happy birthday Thelma Schoonmaker

Happy 71st birthday to editor extraordinaire, Thelma Schoonmaker. Who is she you may wonder ? She's only been Martin Scorsese's full time editor for the past 30 years, going all the way back to when she edited Woodstock.

She's a three time Oscar winner, snagging trophies for The Departed ( 07 ) The Aviator ( 05 ) and as mentioned previously, for Woodstock ( 1970 )

She has just finished cutting Scorsese's latest project Hugo Cabret that has now entered post production, and will make it to theaters this October.

Started to really pay attention to film ( movies ) what was going on in front of the camera, but more interestingly, behind it as well at about as far back as age 10. Motion pictures ( when good ) are a fascinating medium. All the work and prep that goes into filmmaking. It's an amazing process !
