Editing Details:
This PG-13 edits are some of the more intense edits that one can do. Creating a seamless experience when doing such heavy removal of dialogue and visuals is a challenge I'd pose to any faneditor who would like to brush up on their audio and visual editing chops. I know that I grow a ton from doing these in terms of a/v editing skills (or at least I'd like to think that).
