Geektown Radio 142: ‘I, Tonya’ Editor Tatiana S. Riegel, UK TV News & UK TV Air Dates!

Welcome back to Geektown Radio, and this week we have a number of firsts! It’s the first time for our new film reporter, Gray, to appear as co-host, and it’s also the first time we’ve interviewed a film editor on the show!

Tatiana S. Riegel is a highly experienced film & tv editor who has worked across a range of projects, from Quentin Tarantino’s ‘Pulp Fiction’ and ‘Jackie Brown’ to brilliant tv series like ‘Game Of Thrones’ and ‘House’, to movies such as ‘The Men Who Stare at Goats’, ‘There Will Be Blood’ and ‘The Finest Hours’. Her most recent project sees her reteam with longtime collaborator, director Craig Gillespie, on the darkly-comedic biopic ‘I, Tonya’.

The film is a portrait of one of the most controversial figures in sports history, and follows Tonya Harding’s story from her abusive childhood to her shocking figure-skating career, all the while maintaining a tone that strikes a careful balance between pitch-black comedy and real-life tragedy. As editor, it was up to Tatiana to balance the film’s complex moving parts, setting a pace for the ambitious story while giving both the drama and the humour room to shine. Her work in the film just recently earned her an American Cinema Editors nomination.

Also On This Week’s Show:
