Interview with Avengers: Endgame Editors Jeff Ford and Matt Schmidt

Two of the hardest working real-life Avengers in the MCU are Jeffrey Ford, ACE and Matthew Schmidt. They shared Editor credits on four of the films -- Captain America: Winter Soldier, Captain America: Civil War, Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame and worked together on several more MCU films.

The actors and directors take the lions share of the accolades but its these guys who were literally on the front lines, manipulating the tone, pace, and comedic beats, crafting character archs, and storylines. Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame were shot at the same time often forcing the crew to bounce back and forth relentlessly between films and sequences, juggling constant script changing as they shot, "It was like an extreme sport more than filmmaking," stated Ford.

Before joining the MCU with Captain America: The First Avenger, Ford worked on the opposite end of the genre spectrum cutting films like the beloved Christmas classic, The Family Stone, for which he won an ACE "Eddie" Award. Some of his other credits include One Hour Photo, Public Enemies and Crazy Heart. Schmidt joined the MCU on 2012's The Avengers, having previously worked on comic book and genre pictures including Daredevil and I, Robot. His other credits include Contact, A Perfect Murder, and 2007's Halloween (ask him to tell you his Rob Zombie stories).

I sat down with both of them to discuss the massive undertaking of bringing the Tony Stark lead MCU to an end.
