Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays, listeners!

The holidays are upon us which means only one thing: year-end deadlines are looming for our many projects and we are all doomed!

...

I mean...we get to ask Santa for what shiny new toys we could use for next year!

Whether being gifted to us by a jolly fat man, our loved ones or just a little treat to ourselves for retaining our sanity this year, we all have some top requests on our list. What's on your list? More hard drives? Subscription to Adobe for another year (or five)? An editing assistant who works for coffee?

Josh and I list off our top gift requests from Santa this year and had better see a few of these under the tree this year.

Share with us your own Christmas wants via Twitter and we'll see it gets received by the Big Man himself.

Hey, remember our interview with the fellas from SOUNDSTRIPE? Give Episode 65 a listen if you haven't heard it yet.

Should You Charge for Exporting? : Episode 66

Command Edit Podcast Episode 66 Should you charge for exporting

Hellooooooo? Can anyone hear us?

Oh, wait. Someone’s there? Oh! It’s you! You, dear listener, are there! Did you forget about us?

We know it’s been awhile. It’s been awhile for us too. We, Nick and Josh, haven’t caught up since before the holidays (yeah…that long ago) and in this episode we get into all sorts of post production topics that have been going on in our lives recently.

  • We’ll dive into Nick’s film, one that’s been in “post hell,” that Nick has been resurrecting.
  • Josh started a new comedy series and had to make a tough choice between starting it in Premiere or Media Composer.
  • Nick applied to join a union, the DGC (Director's Guild of Canada)
  • Josh got a kettle bell and has been using it for exercise at his desk regularly
  • Nick fell in love with the x5 Challenge on fellow post-production podcast, Fitness in Post
  • We talk about Black MirrorDaredevil (again), Six and basically every TV show out there.
Daredevil
Black Mirror

We wrap up the episode talking about an important topic for any editor that charges by the hour.

Do you charge when the computer is working and you aren’t? Do you charge for importing/exporting/rendering/uploading/etc.? Our awesome Facebook group gave us plenty of opinions and we each add our own. Don’t miss this part!

Interview with Travis Terrell and Micah Sannan from Soundstripe : Episode 65

Command Edit Podcast Soundstripe music licence subscription Travis Terrell Mika Sassan

"Play it, Sam" - Ilsa, Casablanca

Soundstripe music service online

Finding the right music track for your project can be maddening, what with so many choices to pick from out there. And sometimes you can have trouble finding the words to describe what music track you're searching for. On top of that each music licence has its own price tag so you may be limited by your budget (or your own wallet).

Today we are kicking it off with an interview with Travis Terrell and Micah Sassan from Soundstripe, a subscription-based music library that allows you endless uses of its music tracks for all of your projects till the end of time!

You can sign up for as little as $10/month and have full access to their ever-growing library of music. Need help from a human? They also have friendly support staff available to chat directly with at almost any time.

Josh gushes about these guys and their service throughout this episode, and so Nick has followed suit and purchased a year subscription to the service. Let me tell you it's already paid itself off.

Automatic Customer John Warrillow

We all have those projects that leave little-to-no budget for you to play with when selecting music tracks. Soundstripe solves that problem by making it both affordable and easy to pick the right music track.

Now click play on the episode and check them out for yourself.

Also if you were curious about the book suggestion Travis gives in this episode, it's the Automatic Customer by John Warrillow. Adding it my own reading queue right now.
