Isabel’s generous spirit, keen cinematic insight and knack for storytelling really shines through. I also truly enjoyed her prepared notes and fantastic white-boarding session. She adds such immense value to the production and I look forward to working with her again.
Isabel’s natural ability to focus the story and drive the emotion of a piece with rhythm and flow brought out the heartbeat of our project. And she’s a great dialogue editor.
Isabel’s precision and an ability to problem solve creatively while maintaining a great repore with others was key. Isabel was able to assimilate notes and turn things around fast while continuing to add to the evolution of the story and the emotional impact of piece. . . and she made me laugh.”
Isabel’s instincts and intuition are solid. Her ability to craft a narrative is there. When your under a time crunch, her ability to both recognize the trouble zone and come back with a creative solution is super-helpful.
Communication is always clear. Things always get discussed. That wondering anxiety is never present because Isabel’s so willing and open to explore and execute an idea fully.
Building a deep emotional connection to the characters and ramping dramatic conflict over four acts was our priority. Isabel heard that and that remained strong for her throughout the editing process. She helped me think through the story in a much more emotional way, tying in the characters lives to the Big dramatic arc as well as the minor themes of our story.
Isabel has a gift for getting to the heart of the story, a great sense of story construction and care for the characters.
Isabel was committed not just the specifics of being The Editor, but was interested in the project in a holistic way. I hugely appreciated her understanding the bigger goals and of keeping her eye on the big picture.
