To The Community,

It is with a heavy heart that we announce we will no longer be updating Back in 2007, when we started, there was a lack of access to information about film, television, and commercial editing. We wanted to fix that by creating a central location for content about editing to be stored.

Since then, we've watched the amount of content about editing on the internet grow exponentially. We've also watched social media tools come and go with that growth. Does anyone remember Google Wave!? These social media tools changed how people access and search for media and information. People tend to turn to Facebook, Youtube, Twitter, and Instagram for their news and information, and those are all great tools to promote your sites, but as a site that aggregates links to other sites for users, it just doesn't work for us.

We will keep the site live but archive the ability to add links and comments. We will keep our database live with the links for those who desire to use it to search for editing information and research.

Our podcast, The Cutting Room, will move over to the website and will continue to be a place for interviews with editors and other film professionals.

Everyone who worked for loved what we created and are proud that we could help so many editors find content that spoke to them.

I look forward to seeing everyone at the various post events worldwide in the coming years!

Yours truly,
Gordon Burkell Founder

Can You Be Fired for Being Sick?: Episode 55

August 23, 2016, 08:19 AM

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?

Ep45: Breaking into TV Editing with Mark Hartzell

May 9, 2016, 03:11 PM

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?

Interview with the PremiereBro

February 3, 2016, 08:17 AM

This episode we're chatting with the Premiere Bro (aka Sean Schools) who runs the similarly titled site 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.

Say No To Spec : Cmd+Edit 026

January 25, 2016, 09:55 AM

We've all seen those horrific requests posted on forums like Craigslist or that ask for editors with ridiculous terms attached (usually incredibly low payment or nothing at all for editing long-form projects...but you get exposure!). Check out this one in particular though and see if you can spot what's wrong with it.
