They discuss his debut feature, Patient Seven shot in four days and starring Michael Ironside which shot him into the horror making world with a bang. How he learned to edit, He has edited over 200 movies, working with horror master Stuart Gordon (Re-Animator) and how he learned to delegate, working with blood and gore and how having a great UPM and VFX supervisor is essential.
