Award-Winning Director Marc Forster Teams With Cut + Run Editor James Nelson On New Swiss Air Film

You've seen the work of Marc Forster before ("Quantum of Solace," "Finding Neverland," "Monster's Ball" for example). To help orchestrate and unite the myriad of elements involved in these films, Forster turned to Cut + Run Editor Jay Nelson who worked hand-in-hand with the director and the effects production company MK12 on the project.

Nelson, who has significant experience working with voice over, was charged with cutting the project and recording Marc's voice over for the script penned by the director. "We worked in a very organic way to get a very natural sounding voice over," elaborates Nelson. "It was a thrill to be able to guide the voice performance of such a master at directing." Nelson was also instrumental in developing the cadence and timing for the voice over which would "allow room for the action of MK12's amazing motion graphics and design to unfold and build."

The final project has a 2.5 minute and a :30 second version, and was completed in a variety of languages including English, French, German, and Italian. The :30 spot will air on various European television networks and the film length will screen in select theaters and online.
