In episode 28, Joaquin talks to Emmy-nominated editor Justin Krohn, ACE and assistant editor Chris Guiral about their recent experience working on the Apple TV+ series WECRASHED, which stars Jared Leto and Anne Hathaway. They also dive deep into the working relationship between an editor and an assistant editor on Hollywood scripted television shows.
Justin and Chris not only share their process of how they like to work together, but also give advice on what questions assistants can ask their editors if, for example, they want to start cutting scenes or possibly get a co-edit or maybe even get that support to getting bumped up to being a full-time editor.
There’s some great insight here from a successful editing team that has worked on very big shows including MR. ROBOT, HOMECOMING, BLOODLINE, TWIN PEAKS: THE RETURN, and AMERICAN HORROR STORY.
Some of the topics discussed in this episode include what questions an assistant editor can ask their editor when they’re working together for the first time, why an assistant editor is a creative partner, why you don’t need to have scripted TV credits to work on a scripted TV show, how editors can help their assistants move their career forward, how Justin and Chris collaborated on a cool montage sequence in episode 7 of WECRASHED, and a deeper behind-the-scenes look at their experience cutting the Apple TV+ series.
