How Jeff Buchanan found
Amazing Grace

Muse by CLIO caught up with editor Jeff Buchanan about his experience editing the mythological Aretha Franklin concert documentary Amazing Grace, directed by legendary Sydney Pollack – more than 4o years after it was shot!

Here’s just a brief excerpt of Jeff’s interview with Muse’s Tim Nudd, about his experience seeing the footage for the first time:

“It was, of course, beautiful, but what I wasn’t expecting was how intimate it would be. There was so much great footage behind the scenes of the choir getting ready, and the camera and sound recording crew setting up. Also, you got to see conversations between Aretha and Sydney Pollack that none of us knew existed. It was all really amazing.”
