I have just listened back to that podcast and I am filled with shame.

via TweetDeck

@_ClaireConnelly It’s a tiny, tiny amount of work compared with the total editing time in a typical TV drama.

via TweetDeck in reply to _ClaireConnelly

@_ClaireConnelly So the editor’s job isn’t “select 5 sec from 39,000s in the series”, but “select 2 of the 2.5s grabs from those supplied”.

via TweetDeck in reply to _ClaireConnelly

@_ClaireConnelly Retail customers just get a final edit. Distributors / broadcasters get all of that supplied up front, at least in pieces.
