Editor Rita K. Sanders and assistant editor Erin Wolf have been working together for 5 years on such shows as The Magicians (SyFy), You (Netflix), The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina (Netflix), and Batwoman (CW). During their time together they have developed a strong relationship and an efficient way of working. Erin has also received several co-editing credits while working with Rita and is now looking to transition to being a full-time editor. In this episode they give advice on how you can build a better relationship with your editor and how you can go about getting a co-editing credit in scripted television.
Rita K. Sanders began her career by editing television news in Austin, TX on tape-to-tape machines and has since cut feature films, documentaries, scripted and non-scripted television shows.
Most recently, Rita edited on several season of SyFy’s “The Magicians”, Netflix’s “You” and “The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina,” and CW’s “Batwoman”- which has been a dream come true for a nerd who loves fantasy, sci-fi and feminist agendas in media.
Don’t ask her about her philosophy of editing- she is still figuring it out.
Erin grew up in Franklin, Wisconsin and knew she loved filmmaking from a young age. While studying film production at the University of Southern California, she developed a passion for editing. After graduating, Erin started as an intern and assistant editor in music videos before transitioning to scripted television. She’s worked as an assistant editor on The Magicians, Chance, and The Real Husbands of Hollywood, as well as co-editor on episodes of You, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina and Batwoman. When she’s not working, Erin enjoys playing with her two cats, listening to Taylor Swift, and binge watching Schitt’s Creek.
