The Next Best Picture Podcast – Interview With The Editors Of “Searching,” Nick Johnson & Will Merrick

By Matt Neglia 

Searching” is one of the most thrilling and creative films of the year precisely because it tells its entire story through the use of various technological screens. In one of the more unique interviews we have ever conducted here, I had the pleasure to talk with the editors behind the film, Nick Johnson and Will Merrick. We discuss how they met writer/director Aneesh Chaganty, the techniques they used to edit the film, the long timeline until completion, their influences for the project and more!

Searching” is currently playing in limited release and will go wide from Screen Gems on August 31st.
