Build A Better RelationShip With Your Editor & How To Approach A Co-Edit

Written by Joaquin Elizondo

June 16, 2020

Editor Garret Donnelly (Narcos: Mexico, NOS4A2, Knightfall, 24: Legacy, Homeland) joined me on my first-ever Live Stream Q&A to talk about how assistants can build a better working relationship with their editor. We also discussed how assistant editors can pitch themselves to co-edit an episode of scripted TV.

I was Garret’s assistant for some time and we developed a way of working that was fun and productive. Aside from learning a lot from him, he als gave me a chance to co-edit an episode of Narcos: Mexico with him and was very supportive of me getting bumped up to editor.
