From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Arthur Schneider is a television pioneer and a four-time Emmy Award winning television editor, with a career spanning from 1951 to 1988.

Arthur Schneider grew up in New York, and attended Brighton High School in Brighton, New York and Wentworth Military Academy in Lexington, Missouri. In 1948, he entered the University of Southern California, where he majored in Cinema. His television career began in 1951 at the NBC studios in Hollywood where he spent more than 17 years as a motion picture film and videotape editor.

Schneider received seven Emmy nominations and won the award four times. His first win was in 1966 for a Julie Andrews special on NBC. He won his second in 1968 for Laugh-In on NBC. His third was in 1973 for another Julie Andrews show on ABC, and in 1984, he won his fourth for editing an episode of the ABC Afterschool Special series. He is a life member of the honorary American Cinema Editors Society (A.C.E.) and was nominated for an "Eddie" award for editing another Julie Andrews Special in 1973. His list of more than 1,100 film and tape screen credits include the Bob Hope Comedy Specials, the Danny Thomas specials, the Laugh-In series, the Sonny and Cher series, the Dean Martin specials, and the New Mickey Mouse Club series for Walt Disney.

He pioneered the "jump cut" -- his unique editing style mastered on Rowan and Martin's Laugh-In in which a sudden cut from one shot to another is made without a fade-out. The term eventually became his nickname and the title of his autobiography. In 1999, Schneider was given the American Cinema Editors Career Achievement Award.
