Episode 34 Command Edit Podcast Always be Closing Coffee is for Closers

We couldn't think of a title for this AKS (All kinds o' shit) episode so it naturally came out at the beginning as "Always be closing". Hopefully you recognize the legendary line from Alec Baldwin's speech in Glengarry Glen Ross. You don't? Watch it below. It's one of the best written and delivered speeches from a movie about sales.

This week we chime in on the 2016 Oscar nominated titles for Best Editing and their respective editors. We apparently didn't watch many movies last year so we'd like to know from you which you think will win it. Tweet us @CommandEdit with your guess.

In this episode we talk about how to successfully "ping" your clients to keep them in touch and make them remember you when they need work done.

Also, how do you build a quote for your time and price when going after a job? We offer some tips on setting your quote up to get a "Yes" and not shoot yourself in the foot.

As well we highlight a just-released add-on from ScreenLight for Adobe Premiere that allows you to import client feedback directly into your project timeline as markers. This will save you some valuable time while getting those revisions done.
