The Shameless Plugs of the Week: Nick is back from the set of Bed of the Dead, the latest horror feature from Black Fawn Films that he was editing on-set while they were filming.

Internet fans were abuzz with opinions on the Supergirl 6-minute "trailer" for the TV series premiering in the fall. It was described by some as "The Devil Wears Prada mixed with that SNL Black Widow parody trailer. Some editors have taken it upon themselves to re-edit the trailer by slimming it down considerably and amping up the action while ditching a lot of the "ditzy, urban girl problems" material. Nick has started cutting his own version, too.

How do you set up your editing suite and office so that you can better concentrate and do your best work? Some editors have personal touches that they put on their work space, personalizing it and making it there own. Some are neat and tidy. Others are messy and more decorative. Some swear by 18% grey walls and balanced lighting. Others not so much.

There are some things that you can do to improve your work space and allow you to edit better. Listen on to hear from Nick and Josh and about what might work for you.
