The Rough Cut Podcast: Terilyn A. Shropshire, ACE on THE OLD GUARD
July 20, 2020

by Matt Feury, The Rough Cut

For twenty years editor Terilyn A. Shropshire, ACE and director Gina Prince-Bythewood have worked hand in hand to entertain and inspire audiences with films dating back to Gina’s directorial debut, Love and Basketball. While their new Netflix hit, The Old Guard, seems to be a departure from Terilyn’s previous work with Gina (as well as her other long time collaborator, director Kasi Lemmons), Terilyn demonstrates how to bring out the drama and humanity in an action scene, while still delivering the high-energy thrills the audience is expecting.  Terilyn also talks with us about; explaining back stories without slowing down the film, cutting dialogue in a way that demonstrates familiarity between characters, developing “main on end” credit sequences, and also how she got her start with Gina.
