Whether the medium is film or video, the edit is where the story comes together. Once production wraps, someone needs to put all the pieces together and make sense out of hours of footage. This is where the post-production team comes in. An editor, usually with a director or producer, crafts the story, adds music, sound, effects, and finishing touches. But what if different editors took the same footage and received no direction on what the intent of the finished product was to be? Would each editor come up with a different story, or would the footage always transpire into the same story? The Wonderful Wizards of Post explores this phenomena. Can The Wizard of Oz become a horror film? A romance? A surreal experience? Or something entirely different? Would the good become evil and the evil become good? Watch and see what happens to this well-loved film.
