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.

ON WITH THE SHOW

Mae was bartending and raising a daughter in Atlanta when a producer approached her after seeing her music mashup projects that she continued to work on in her spare time.

Self-taught and self-propelled, after seeing a trailer for Zack Snyder's 300 she immediately vowed to become an editor.

She's a delightful and talented person to begin with but she's also a real-life example of what you should do if you're passionate about your work but have no doors open to you to the industry.

Quitting the business! : Cmd+Edit 054

Command Edit Podcast Episode 54 Post Production Editor When to quit the filmmaking industry

Welcome to Episode 54 of Command+Edit Podcast!

We all inevitably reach a point in our careers when we start to really question if this industry is for you. Let's face it, it's not for everyone. It means long hours, a lot of pressure, making deadlines, unsteady financial status and dealing with a lot of other factors that make your job difficult.

This came about recently when a colorist/editor that we follow, Ben Brainerd, announced on Twitter that he was hanging up his hat and switching careers entirely. You can read all about his decisions, how he arrived at them and his reasons for settling on this new path (and a completely different address!).

Follow Ben Brainerd on Twitter and join us in wishing him well on his journey.

If you have ever reached a point where you seriously considered getting out of the filmmaking business entirely, then we would like to hear your story. Email us (CommandEditPodcast@gmail.com) or tweet us (www.twitter.com/CommandEdit).

Taking the leap into FREELANCING : Cmd+Edit 047

Nick MontgomeryComment
Taking the leap to freelance film and video editing Episode 47 of Command Edit Podcast

Josh has an announcement to make: he is taking the leap to being a freelance editor!

On this podcast we've discussed the differences between freelance and contract/full-time positions, with Josh and Nick representing both sides of the coin. However now...all that is about to change.

This decision has been long in the making and there has been much thought put into this move. This episode we get to capture what goes on in the mind of an editor as they make this transition. So for editors who are considering going freelance, this will be a great episode to know how to best prepare yourself for it.

Thanks to our listeners!

Be sure to subscribe below and share this episode with your circle of friends.

Because if you're a freelancer then you're probably working at home right now and have a tab open to Facebook right now, right?...
