Passion, Humility & Exploitation: The Growing Pains of Dan Crinnion ACE Part 2

by Paddy Bird on
April 8, 2021

If you’re in the mood for an open, no-nonsense, and hugely entertaining chat about editing, then look no further than the concluding part of Dan Crinnion’s appearance on this week's podcast.

Dan Crinnion ACE started as a production runner at the legendary Ealing Studios in London and worked his way up from assistant editor on massive dramas like Downton Abbey, all the way up to the award-winning Killing Eve and Batman spinoff, Pennyworth.

Along the way, he's grabbed a BAFTA nomination, an Emmy nomination and won an Eddie award for best edited Drama Series, so I think it’s safe to say he knows what he’s talking about!

Aside from all that, he’s just a loveable and likeable guy who talks so openly about the creative demons we all wrestle with. I know you’re gonna enjoy what he has to say on this week’s show!

Make no mistake, montage is one of the most powerful spectacles we can construct in editing. It serves so many purposes and can create so many powerful emotions if crafted well. But understanding the theories and techniques beneath this alluring visual skill is by no means simple.

In this month’s Bootcamp Paddy demystifies the art of montage by taking apart all of it’s laws and giving you the tools and techniques to build this irresistible visual stylisation. Quite simply, if you do not master this particular part of our art form, you are an incomplete editor.
