CineCast: Advice for the Long Journey to Assistant Editor

Noah Chamow and Conor Burke share the twists and turns of their post-production careers in this final episode in a three-part series on careers in post-production for CineCast, powered by Cinedeck. Host Shelby Skrhak sat down with the two founders of Assistant Editors’ Bootcamp, an informal education program that teaches the ins and outs of post-production skills and duties for newbies, to dig into their specific paths to arriving at post-production.

Chamow worked in several different aspects of the film industry — pre-production and production as an extra — before landing on post-production as the right fit for him.

“Pre-production was such a heavily relationship-based part of the industry and I’m just not that person,” he said. “I realized then I wanted to get into assistant editing.”

Burke had no problem with the relationship aspect of the industry, but found it challenging to learn on the job until he met Chamow.

“Just having someone I could ask questions and call if I didn’t know how to do something,” Burke said.

Since then, Burke has gone on to help other editors learn on the job, just as Chamow did for him. The two discuss the specific and unlikely ways they found work in the film industry and share tips along the journey.
