Woodberry Alumnus Wins Oscar for Film Editing

Woodberry alumnus Angus Wall ’84, along with Kirk Baxter, won an Academy Award for film editing for his work on The Social Network at the February 27, 2011, ceremony in Hollywood. This award was one of three won by the David Fincher film; the other nominees included Black Swan and The King’s Speech.
After leaving Woodberry, Angus earned a BA in fine arts from Bowdoin College and founded Rock Paper Scissors, a Hollywood editorial firm known for pioneering work in all-digital filmmaking. His previous work includes editing The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, for which he and Baxter received an Oscar nomination.
Angus is currently working on David Fincher’s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, scheduled for release this year.
