VFX editor Richard Trammell’s follow up to Fight Club Minus Tyler Durden.

Sez he of this deftly tweaked pivotal scene from The Shining:

I decided to keep Grady’s voice audible on this one, since his existence is a bit murkier than TD’s in Fight Club. That and I really love Philip Stone’s voice and would have hated to lose it. I also avoided cutting to his close-up so as not to have shots of “nothing” interspersed.
