This episode is the latest Q&A episode with my trusty sidekick Natalie Boschan, and in this episode we answer the question “How do I know when it’s worth it to take a great career opportunity that might mean sacrificing time with my family?” plus I reveal big news for the future of the Fitness In Post program.

Ep116: What Does It Take to Be An Ep116: What Does It Take to Be An "ACE" Editor?

Fitness In Post

"What is ACE, how do I become a member, and what are the benefits?" are common questions I'm asked often by fellow film editors (that I've also asked myself). Beyond simply breaking down the criteria for entry into the most prestigious organization in the post-production industry, in this episode I speak with Steve Rivkin, ACE President and editor of such films as Avatar, Pirates of the Caribbean, Ali, and many more, about what it really takes to be considered an elite editor, whether or not you belong to ACE. We break down how Stephen broke into the film industry without every having an...

Let’s be honest...many of the poor habits that we have living in front of our computers did not materialize overnight. Instead they formed very slowly over years and years, and most likely many of the bad habits that you carry with you today started way back in college, or when you were a recent graduate killing yourself trying to “make it” in the film industry. Recently I was approached by Austin Coburn, a current student at George Fox University in Oregon, because unlike many college students who spend endless all-nighters getting their projects done fueled by Red Bull and fast food,...

Fitness In Post

Film editing is a magical art form that very few people truly understand. Frankly, there are people within the film industry that don't understand the power the editor yields in shaping the finished product. In this episode I have an in-depth conversation with Steven Hullfish, a feature film and tv editor, instructor, and author of multiple books on editing (and the entire post-production process) including his latest book Art of the Cut. Steve and I chat about his journey preparing for and compiling over 50 interviews with editing legends, and beyond just the interviews themselves how he was...

Let's face it: When you routinely work 16 hours a day in front of a computer, one of the greatest challenges is maintaining a healthy diet. On Monday morning you resolve to do better this week, but as the deadlines pile on and the time begins to disappear, your willpower quickly erodes and you'll grab whatever you can quickly to keep moving. If you're lucky it's Chinese or Thai provided by your office assistant, and if you're not so lucky, it's a bowl of cereal and Oreo's (I've been there myself...I'm not judging). And if you truly want to eat healthy either at the office cafeteria or by...

No matter how passionate, energetic, and dedicated you are to your creative profession, you will inevitably reach a point of exhaustion and burnout. It happens to the best of us including me. In today’s episode I have a conversation with post-production guru Michael Kammes that runs the gamut from tech all the way to really in-depth and honest conversations about mental health. If you’ve ever found yourself at a point in your life where you’re just spinning your wheels and walking into work every day wondering if it’s the right choice for you, Michael’s story is very inspiring. He is...

As a creative professional you most likely fuel yourself on a daily basis with caffeine and afternoon sugar rushes, you fend off brain fog and the inevitable afternoon nap, and you'll spend however long it takes to make your latest project perfect (whether you're getting paid or not). But how is your modern lifestyle not only affecting your general health but also your brain health? In this episode I have an in-depth conversation with Dr. Dave Jenkins, co-founder of The More Model. With experience in both the traditional medical fields as well as functional and integrative medicine, Dr....

More Episodes

In part 2 of this episode I continue my conversation with Kylee Wall and Siân Fever about work environments for women in post-production. This episode was inspired by a recent article by Kylee Wall on Creative Cow titled Sexism In Post. We talk about why Kylee wrote the article in the first place, lots of different studies about the gender gap in post-production, wage differences for the same jobs, and we even go as far to discuss sexual harassment and other not-so-pleasant topics.
