Arctic Tale

My brother Eric was an assistant editor on this film, which I think should be coming out nationwide pretty soon if it hasn't already. My family saw a preview of it in Chicago a couple of weeks ago, and I think kids will probably really enjoy it, or at least parts of it. Eric has been regaling us with stories surrounding the process of getting this movie completed for almost two years now, and some of them are pretty incredible (the production meeting where it was argued whether or not walruses could have flashbacks is a highlight). Knowing all the changes the film went through it's amazing it finally got finished and it makes me wonder how ANYTHING gets done in the film industry!

Anyway since you all have kids in the right age group for this movie, I thought I would give a shout-out to Eric-- his name is the first listed in the credits under "Assistant Editors". AND-- this is what we're most proud of as a family-- a lot of Eric's sound edits made it into the final cut of the film, over those the actual sound editor did, most notably in the walrus "pull my flipper" sequence. That's right, Eric has found his niche as the go-to fart wizard! Now that the film is finished and Eric has to find another project to work on, I hope he will be sure to make a note of that on his resume.
