Mike Hill says “Rush” could be the most technically difficult movie director Ron Howard has ever made.

Hill, who calls Omaha home, should know. He and Dan Hanley have been editing Howard’s movies since “Night Shift” in 1982. In fact, they’ve edited all but the first of Howard’s theatrical releases as a director, 21 movies in all. They earned Oscar nominations for editing four of them: “Apollo 13,” “A Beautiful Mind,” “Cinderella Man” and “Frost/Nixon,” winning for “Apollo 13.” All four were also best-picture nominees, with “A Beautiful Mind” winning.
