Justin Morrow of NoFilmSchool examines the signature editing techniques of Martin Scorsese and his longtime editor Thelma Schoonmaker, and how they have influenced other filmmakers.

He writes, "While many filmmakers strive for so-called “invisible editing,” or the placement of cuts so that the audience doesn’t even notice them, Scorsese takes full advantage of every technique in the cinematic palette. Of course, it’s impossible to quantify just how much of Scorsese’s cutting is his sensibility, and how much is Thelma Schoonmaker’s, who has been his editoron nearly every film he’s made. While she has made it clear that Scorsese is the final arbiter, the fact remains that she does the nuts and bolts of cutting the film, supervising the editing team, and has learned to channel Scorsese’s sensibilities through her own eyes. Any discussion of his cutting style has to include her input."
