Carol Littleton, ACE


Qtr 1, 2016


When the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences recently interviewed Carol Littleton, ACE, for its archives, it was not surprising, given her profound gifts and accomplishments as an editor. What might seem unexpected are the two additions she made to her timeline: “Walked the Camino de Santiago pilgrimage route in Spain” and “Walked two legs of the Chemin de Saint Jacques in France.” Those who know Littleton understand why she includes those restorative, medieval walks among the 38 films she has edited. Her passion for a life lived meaningfully and her deep appreciation for the arts are inseparable from her work.

2015 ACE Interns

How to start a career in editing
By Edgar Burcksen

400internsThe ACE Internship Program is one of the more rewarding institutions ACE has created through its American Cinema Editors Educational Center foundation; it has benefited many aspiring student editors who had a chance to experience the ropes of the professional editing rooms of film and TV productions at the epicenter of the entertainment industry. All the interns who were chosen to participate in this program over the years since it was started in 1990 have found their way into the industry and have become successful editors in their own right.

In 2011, the 2002 ACE intern, Hunter M. Via, was nominated and won the Eddie for The Walking Dead to name but one. Lori Coleman, ACE, and Diana Friedberg, ACE, were recruited by then ACE board member Bill Gordean, ACE, to take in an intern into their cutting rooms in the early days of the program in 1993 and when Gordean saw how well they connected to the program, he put them in charge of it. Coleman and Friedberg began expanding the program to what it is today, a very popular opening of the door to professional cutting rooms. After shepherding prospective editors for more than 20 years, Coleman and Friedberg have handed over the reins to up-and-coming editors Carsten Kurpanek and Tyler Nelson.
