Coming to a theater near you is “Moms Night Out” starring: Sarah Drew, Sean Astin, Patricia Heaton, Trace Adkins, David Hunt, Andrea Logan White, Robert Amaya, Abbie Cobb, Harry Shum Jr., Kevin Downes, and Alex Kendrick.
Directed by The Erwin Brothers Andrew and Jon, “Moms Night Out” is an endearing true-to-life family comedy for the full family.
“Moms Night Out” is a film that celebrates the beautiful mess called parenting.
Jonathan Olive said, “It’s great to work on a film that is made for the entire family. Knowing that there is something for everyone is an exciting feeling. Working with the Erwin bothers was fantastic. They have such a strong vision and style. There was never a question on what to do, or where to take the film. Jon and Andy truly make a perfect team. I co-edited the movie with Andy and enjoyed every second of it.
“When you work with someone as gifted as Andy, you will constantly be learning new techniques. Andy has a gift for shot selection and how to navigate the edit.” Olive, who is currently in Los Angeles for the movie’s Red Carpet screening at the famous TCL Chinese Theatre on the historic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Hollywood, California said, “I am very excited for America to see this movie, I know they will just love it!”
Olive, a young and upcoming film editor, has worked on numerous productions since graduating in 2001 from Waccamaw High School in Pawleys Island, getting his BFA in Film from The University of North Carolina School of the Arts in 2005, and obtaining his Masters in Film Editing at Regent University in 2010.
Olive has worked on films such as “The Ultimate Gift” starring James Garner and Abigail Breslin, “The List” starring Malcolm McDowell and Chuck Carrington, “The Trial” starring Matthew Modine and Bob Gunton, “The Dog Days of Summer” starring Will Patton, “Jimmy” starring Ted Levine and Kelly Carlson, and most recently “Somebody’s Child” starring Michael Jai White and Lynn Whitfield. He edited Emmy nominated “The Heart of Christmas” starring Candace Cameron Bure and Mathew West, which debuted on UPtv (formerly the Gospel Music Channel) and was the highest-rated GMC world-premiere movie to date.
Olive now resides in Atlanta, Ga and is currently editing the film “Mountaintop” starring Barry Corbin, Bob Gunton, and Coby Ryan McLaughlin.
