Dino Harambasic - Toronto
There are so many modern pictures I wish I'd cut, but one traditional picture that sticks out every time is Dziga Vertov's "Man With a Movie Camera"... today, using today's technology. Just the amount of footage he was able to play around with without any direct limitations in regards to the format - its at the time, revolutionary approach resembles my editing style as well. Other than that, I wish I had cut something experimental or non-narrative, so anything by Stan Brakhage or Peter Kubelka. When it comes to the masters, Kurosawa's Rashomon would probably look nice on my timeline. Rashomon doesn't follow the traditional 3-act structure and was very radical in its time.
