Today's guest is Mark Hartzell (editor on True Blood, Agent Carter, Animal Kingdom) to talk about how he got into TV editing and what the differences are between TV editors and feature film editors.
What it's like transitioning from show-to-show often
How does the workflow differ between shows?
How do you know when to say "No" to a script?
...and how do you do it politely and professionally so that bridges don't get burned?
How to work your way onto one of the BIG shows like Agent Carter?

We welcome editor Erik Swanson on the show, who recently completed work on his first feature length credit: Rise of the Sufferfests, a documentary that explores the rising trend of OCR (Obstacle Course Racing). You may have heard me talk about OCR occasionally as it's become an obsession of mine in the past year. If you've heard of Tough Mudder, Spartan races or anything similar then you've probably thought one of two things: 1) "That sounds like fun!" or 2) "Why do people actually do this??"

This started as a Twitter discussion from a question Scott Simmons posed earlier. There were many different opinions shared and it's not a simple yes/no question. So we're here to discuss it further, what are your rights as a freelancer and how should you balance out the responsibilities of the job and your own health?

In this episode we talk about what it's like editing a feature with Davinci Resolve, once thought to only be a colour grading application. Until BlackMagic released version 12 with some NLE capabilities. It's not exactly the easiest transition in the world to change over to Resolve though... PLUS, we have a contest! Win a copy of Post Notes for Premiere Pro. Find out how.

Rejection is inevitable, whether it be in sales, in creative decision-making, or any other part of the business. Failure is a part of the game. Rejection is universal. How does rejection reflect on you? What is the best way to react to a rejection? How do you deal with a "No"? Josh and Nick go into some tips on how to react to rejection and how it can actually benefit you in the long run.

A lot of headaches can be avoided simply by asking the right question before you start working. We have 3 questions for the corporate/commercial editor and 3 for the narrative/feature film editor. So really you're getting double the value here.

This week in an attempt at a Valentine's-themed episode we invited David on the show. Who is David? He is the husband-to-be of a TV editor and friend of mine who agreed to awkwardly talk to us about what it's like to basically be married to someone who works the crazy hours we do and speaks in hard-to-understand lingo at the end of the work day.

This episode we're chatting with the Premiere Bro (aka Sean Schools) who runs the similarly titled site www.premierebro.com which serves as a valuable resource for those Adobe editors out there. We talked about how he got hooked on Premiere, how he earned the moniker "Premiere Bro", how he balances work plus life (with a family) PLUS maintaining his online presence as an Adobe expert, as well as some other kind of invasive questions.
