Recently, I got to speak with editor Eric Litman who’s recently worked on Marvel’s Emmy-nominated series “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D” and National Geographic’s award-contending show “Hot Zone: Anthrax”.
With Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, Eric honoured the characters’ history while keeping the show grounded in reality through performance selection, pace, and music. The emotional beats were crucial and the pace needed to be slowed down so that the moments would land. Heavily choreographed fight scenes were a main component of the show, and the heroes and villains always needed to look “super”. His editing philosophy is to let the footage tell him how to cut and when it came to editing for a powerhouse series like this, the process was exciting and challenging.
Eric’s work on Hot Zone: Anthrax was a much different tone to undertake. It was achieved with a slow, deliberate cutting-style, including hanging longer on shots to feel an emotional impact. Eric edited the pilot and is especially proud of his work on episode five, “Stentor Roeselli,” the episode in which Agent Ryker faces off with Bruce Ivins in a 9 minute interrogation scene.
In addition to those shows, Eric’s had the opportunity to work as an editor on many well known shows, including Black Sails, Magnum P.I., Charmed, and the upcoming Star Trek: Picard, airing in 2022
