David Ian Salter, A.C.E., is an Eddie-Award-nominated film editor, best known for his pioneering work in computer-animated feature films. Salter joined the young Pixar Animation Studios in January of 1996, just over a month
after the studio had released the world's first animated feature (the first Toy Story). As  Second Editor on Pixar's second feature film, A Bug's Life, Salter became one of a
handful of editors redefining the craft of editing for the then-new medium of computeranimated features. Salter's next task was leading the editorial crew through the reboot of Toy Story 2. When Pixar became aware that the sequel had run into creative trouble, Salter was the first crew member tasked with helping to save the foundering production, an effort that would eventually see virtually the entire studio jumping aboard to completely remake the film in one-third of the normal time. His work on Finding Nemo garnered Salter an American Cinema Editors' Eddie Award nomination in the category of Best Edited Feature Film - Comedy or Musical. Following Nemo, Salter was recruited personally by Jeffrey Katzenberg to join DreamWorks Animation as a director. During his time at DreamWorks, Salter developed
a number of projects, including the Shrek Christmas special, Shrek the Halls, which he also directed through pre-production. During this time, he also served as an editorial
consultant on the Aardman feature Wallace & Gromit in The Curse of the Were-Rabbit. Salter has also worked in episodic television, commercials, and even video games. You can email your questions to 123filmeasy@gmail.com Link: www.123FilmEasy.com. Follow us on Twitter @123Film
