    Steven Spielberg

    When I woke up this morning I was thinking about Steven Spielberg (artistically, not erotically I should add). And I was thinking back over some of the films that he has directed and there are just so many crackers. Can any other director come close to making great 'entertainment'?

    The first films that came to mind were the 'Back to the Future' series. Okay, not arthouse classics, but they were not intended to be. Same same Indiana Jones, say what you like about big budgets (and big budgies) - he has made so so many complete products with very few stinkers.

    I checked on imdb

    Steven Spielberg (I)

    and found that he was also involved on tons of other movies, e.g. supervising editor on Taxi Driver.

    Can anyone disagree with the statement that the man is a genius at his craft?
    Back off Margaret, you're on a sugar rush!

    I don't think they do anything.
    they are paid to lend their name to the production.

    I thought 'Close Encounters of the Turd Kind' was an artistic failure. And Hook was a shocker. But Schindlers was a total artistic success.
    He's both a great Director and a great Producer.

    I didn't think anyone would pay to add the name LLewelleffedrrig Jones to anything.

    Yes, thanks danbo, I knew that.....by the way I didn't think you could speak Maori too, but I was particularly asking about Supervising editors, rather than common or garden film editors.

    Te Miki Maur filu

    Oops, sorry I see they claim

    Alternative Titles

    • Assistant Editor
    • Editor (Film)
    • Offline Editor

    • Online Editor
    • Supervising Editor

    all to be the same thing.

    That can't be right can it?

    Salaries

    Salary varies, but film editors usually earn between $30,000 and $60,000 per year. Most film editors are self-employed and work on contract. Experienced editors may earn up to $4,000 per week working on a feature film, $2,500 per week on television drama and up to $1,000 per day on television commercials.
    Well, that's me sorted, as soon as I can find out what I've got to do and how to do it, I'll be rich, rich I say

    Jaws would probably be my favourite. The new Indiana Jones should be interesting - How will Harrison play it?

    I was going to comment on Spielberg's lack of success at the Oscars, but this appears to be only at winning, he's had 74 nominations. I read that there was some artistic snobbery attached to his not often picking up the gong - Film folk! Tsk!

    From Wiki:

    Steven Allan Spielberg KBE (born December 18, 1946) is an American film director and producer. Spielberg is a three-time Academy Award winner and the most financially successful filmmaker; [1] his fortune is estimated over $3 billion. As of 2006, Premiere listed him as the most powerful and influential figure in the motion picture industry. TIME named him in the '100 Greatest People of the Century'. At the end of the 20th century LIFE named him the most influential person of his generation.[2]

    Not done all that bad then.
