The XX

When Tom Lindsay and Saam got together to cut 'Islands' for The XX it took them a record 2 hours to complete. By Tom's own admission it's not really about the edit. Even so, decisions like the simple hard cuts work really well, and are pretty much Saam / Tom signatures.

The choreography, subtle narrative, and even motion control vs a grip are topics that have cyber chins wagging online in geekville. But we just think it's beautiful.
