MICHAEL FOX

V.P. Film and Television

Michael is a storyteller and picture editor with over twenty years of experience in film and television. After years of living and cutting in LA, he returned to his Utah home and love of all things outdoors. Shortly thereafter he became intimately involved in the creation of Rhythm and Pace, a creative film editing company that specializes in narrative story telling.

Michael began his editing career on the CBS family drama Touched by an Angel. That set him on a path that would eventually see him working with JJ Abrams (Almost Human, Believe), Michael Bay (The Last Ship), Stephen King (11.22.63., Mr. Mercedes) and many others. Michael is fiercely talented, lightning fast and a consummate perfectionist.

Michael Fox

In the immortal words of David Mamet;

“The humbling truth is that a film is made in the editing room. The most magnificent performances and the best intentions mean nothing if they don’t cut. The film goes by at twenty-four frames per second, and however lovely it is, however thoughtful it is, however deeply felt, all the audience cares about is what happens next. The director, the actor, the designer, the writer can and do become sidetracked, confused, indeed even inspired into serving two masters – the story and themselves. The editor serves only the story. As such, they are the best friend of the audience, and time and again, the salvation of the filmmaker.”
