Footage ≠ Coverage

I don't know how you can have this much footage of one actor and still not get all their lines on camera. Okay, so it's not like I'm going to play every line on screen but you know, I'd at least like to get their first line on camera so people know they're in the fucking room!

Crossing the Axis

Uh yeah, there's this thing called "crossing the axis", you shouldn't do it, for reals. Now I have to deal with jarring cuts and eyelines that don't work, thanks for that.

Err, what? How many pages?

I think this says it all...

Wonderfully Horrific Editor Job Ad #1

Wonderful! This is exactly the unpaid opportunity I needed to break into the competitive field of Demo Reel Editing! Just imagine how awesome your DP reel will look... on my… editor's… reel… wait, what?

BTW, jobs are always for money, that's why it's called a "job". 


 noun \ˈjäb\
: the work that a person does regularly in order to earn money
Boom. Yeah, that just happened.

No Time to Slate

If I hear just one more AD utter the words "Cutting between takes costs us too much time and we won't make our days" things are likely to get messy.

You can't make your day because turning the camera and sound recorders off and on takes too much time?  Isn't that like an admission of incompetence?
