Screen Scene’s Nathan Nugent in the running for ‘Best Editor’ at this weekends Independent Spirit Award February 26, 2016


Screen Scene editor Nathan Nugent is up for an Independent Spirit Award this weekend for his incredible work on Lenny Abrahamson’s ‘Room’.

Room received nominations in the categories for Best First Screenplay (Emma Donoghue), Best Female Lead (Brie Larson), and Best Editing (Nathan Nugent —  in case that wasnt clear from my previous sentence) at tomorrow night’s award ceremony, which is taking place in Santa Monica.

Starring Brie Larson, Joan Allen and William H. Macy, Room tells the harrowing story of a young woman (Larson) and her 5-year-old son, Jack (newcomer Jacob Tremblay) who have been locked in a 10-foot by 10-foot single room as prisoners for multiple years. The room is the only home Jack has ever known, but as his curiosity is building alongside his Mothers own desperation, she knows it cannot contain either indefinitely…

An Element Pictures and No Trace Camping production, produced by Ed Guiney and David Gross, the movie was was edited here at Screen Scene by the aforementioned Nathan Nugent, with full sound post taking place here and at Ardmore Sound. Screen Scene also provided all the films VFX.

Huge congratulations to Nathan Nugent on the well deserved Independent Spirit nomination — fingers crossed there will be accolade laden glory for him tomorrow night!
