BHS grad edits new Hollywood film premiering Friday

Vaughn Bien in his office in Los AngelesA new movie coming out of Hollywood was edited by Vaughn David Bien III, a 2005 graduate of Burnsville High School. Bien served as the chief editor of “Breaking & Exiting” which stars Milo Gibson (son of Mel Gibson) and Jordan Hinson.

A mini premiere event took place at the Emagine Lakeville theater on Aug. 17. 

The film will also be showing at other AMC Theaters in the Twin Cities. Bien previously was co-editor for “Walking With the Enemy,” which starred Sir Ben Kingsley.

Bien started his education at Hidden Valley Elementary School (where his mother Bernie Bien was the school nurse) then attended Eagle Ridge Junior High.

Originally, he wanted to be a director but when he began taking classes at Columbia College Chicago, he realized that his passion was with post-production so he became a film editor instead. He earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in film production and now works for Kappa Studios and lives in Los Angeles.
