Harrison Atkins (Madeline’s Madeline, editor)

The versatile Harrison Atkins has been working on the indie scene in varying capacities for a while now, writing and directing his own film, 2015’s Lace Crater while editing Joe Swanberg’s Netflix series Easy as well.

With ADR from scenes overlaid over different moments, and other scenes edited out of order from the script, Decker’s wonderfully-original new film is bold and inventive, and Atkins’ diligent work in the editing suite is largely responsible. –Caleb Hammond
