One of the challenges in this ...

The Rush of Rushes

The best thing about being an editor is the stuff you learn from the actual content of whatever you’re editing. Editing a documentary film is like entering a whole new world. You leave your own world behind temporarily, and when you come back, you can enjoy ...
