Hunger Games: Mockingjay -- Parts 1 and 2 editor Alan Bell talks to Red Shark News about the breakneck speed at which he and co-editors Mark Yoshikawa and Jennifer Vecchiarello had to cut the blockbuster films.

"My big prep thing was that I built the trailer,” says Bell. “Because we had such an accelerated post schedule on Mockingjay 1, and because it was such a long shoot, it would be a good idea if I had a cutting room on set. I had two: one in the trailer and at the studio next to Mark's.”
