The revolutionary online editing course that teaches you the art of editing.
S3E5. In Conversation With Carly Brown Part 2
From high-octane Formula One promo editing to assisting on a Keira Knightley feature film to teaching a famous film director how to use Avid during the Covid Lockdown, the hugely talented Carly Brown tells the concluding part of her inspirational story on this week's show.
S3E4. In Conversation With Carly Brown Part 1
One of the parts of an editor's personal story that I find truly inspiring is how they've managed to rise through the ranks. We all have a unique path into our art form but listening to the struggles, sacrifices and choices that fellow artists made along the way to success is often one of the most useful and motivating things we can take on board.
S3E3. In Defence of Jump Cuts
Jump Cuts, what a pain. They create areas we have to hide, they create continuity issues and can often ruin the fluidity of our cutting patterns. What's to love?
S3E2. The Chameleon Effect: Working With Directors
Directors... The most important relationships we'll ever have throughout our careers. The power they wield in how successful we become is astonishing. We can be amazing creative editors but if we do not put as much care and attention into cultivating the director/editor relationship we are putting our careers and earning potential at risk.
S3E1. Story Arcs: What Every Creative Editor Needs to Know
What is a Story Arc? Are they important? How do we build one on our timeline? Very important questions for us to ask as creative editors. But for me they only scratch the surface of the things we need to consider when crafting high end films.
S2E17. Gear Acquisition Syndrome: The Curse of The Modern Filmmaker
GAS. Gear Acquisition Syndrome. Yeah, it's a problem and in my opinion, it is a major hindrance to filmmaking. On this week's show, I talk about when and how I first spotted this problem in the industry, its effects on filmmakers and most importantly how they can break free.
As an experienced editor who is self taught. Like most of us. Hearing Paddy vocalise the the unspoken craft and skills which I’ve developed over the years is not only reassuring but cements this knowledge. We’re an isolated group of artists and sharing our stories is incredibly important for community and creativity. Thanks Paddy!
As an editor I am very grateful to have such a brilliant, in depth podcast about editing that goes beyond software.
Each episode is incredibly interesting and I shall be sharing this with friends and colleagues within the industry.
Fabulous podcast for creatives!
I am not a film maker or editor, but it has lots of great transferable tips for fiction writing too. Particularly enjoyed the show about creating a backstory. Paddy is fab podcaster and talks you through processes with clarity and interest. So much to delve into here which you’ll find helpful and inspiring.
