Brent White is an American film editor with over 10 editing credits on feature films dating from 1993. Since 2004, White has worked on six successive comedy films produced or co-produced by Judd Apatow, and directed by Apatow or Adam McKay. White's work as an editor on the films directed by Apatow and McKay is unusual because of the importance of the actors' improvisations. Eric Melin's review of the film Talladega Nights (2006) focuses on this aspect of White's editing, "the MVP of the movie is most definitely editor Brent White. Just as he did with 2004's "Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy," White had to choose the best scenes from hours and hours of wildly different takes to fashion together something with a narrative arc that resembles a movie. It can't be easy work, but he had a little more story to work with than he did in the uneven "Anchorman." Minor continuity errors be damned, "Talladega Nights" is one funny film." The editing of Knocked Up (2007) was described in a feature article by Stephen Rodrick in The New York Times.
