A new film from Walt Disney Animation Studios, "RAYA AND THE LAST DRAGON" will be released simultaneously in theatres and on Disney+ with Premier Access on March 5th.
We sit down with Shannon Stein (Co-Editor) who edits each part of a film together in creative ways to best support the theme, pacing, and story of the movie. Stein joined Walt Disney Animation Studios in 1999 as an assistant editor on “Brother Bear,” and became an associate editor for “Bolt,” “Tangled,” and Oscar®-winning feature film “Big Hero 6.” He additionally served as editor for the animated short, “Inner Workings.” Raised in Seminole, Fla., Stein attended Florida State University and studied Communications with an emphasis in media production and a minor in sports management. In his last semester at the university, Stein was an editor on the in-house student productions and attributes that experience as the source of his aspiration to become an editor for film.
