A Long Winded As F#@% Interview with Joe Vallero : Episode 63

Episode 63 of Command Edit Podcast interview with Joe Vallero editor in Los Angeles LA working as an editor in feature films War of the Worlds, 300 Rise of an Empire, Argo with tips for post-production work

Okay so this episode with Joe isn't long-winded as f#@% but his podcast sure is.

I'm not kidding. It's called the Long-Winded As F#@% Podcast.

Let me back it up a bit. Joe Vallero is an editor who made the move to LA and has the IMDB page to show it. In our interview with him here we ask him about how making the transition to LA and finding work went for him, any tips he would have for other editors looking to wedge their foot in the proverbial door of big productions and what myths about working in LA hold water and which ones are just fluff.

His work experience is also pretty interesting if you take a look at his credits. He's edited featurettes for a number of larger productions (War of the Worlds, 300: Rise of an Empire, Argo, Hatchet).

And, as mentioned, he has a podcast that he co-hosts called The Long-Winded As F#@% Podcast where he and co-host Nick review randomly-selected movies from the library of Netflix.

Tweet Joe on Twitter and tell him that you listened to his interview on Command+Edit. Go ahead. We'll wait... (

Breaking into TV Editing with Mark Hartzell : Cmd+Edit 045

Command Edit Podcast Episode 45 with Mark Hartzell interview tv editor for True Blood and Agent Carter

Today's guest is Mark Hartzell (editor on True Blood, Agent Carter, Animal Kingdom) to talk about how he got into TV editing and what the differences are between TV editors and feature film editors.

We talked about:

  • What it's like transitioning from show-to-show often
  • How does the workflow differ between shows?
  • How do you know when to say "No" to a script?
  • ...and how do you do it politely and professionally so that bridges don't get burned?
  • And how does an editor work their way onto one of the BIG shows like Agent Carter? (or how can Nick weasel his way into working on The Golden Compass series?)
