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!

The Power Of Music Editing: Part 2

Saturday, Feb 12, 3PM GMT

We’re really excited to announce Part 2 of our Music Editing Bootcamp. The number one skill that high end clients ask for more than any other is the ability to skilfully score sequences. It’s a complex art form within the art of editing and requires deep and intense analysis in order to master it.

We created the foundations of musical editing theory in Part 1 of our Bootcamp series by studying musical structure, tonality, assignment and tempo. Now, it’s time to go more in depth and look at the techniques used in pro edit suites around the world.

This is why we’ve developed a series of 2 hour, live Bootcamps dedicated to mastering this little known part of the art of editing.

Are you Drowning in a Sea of Technical Editing Courses?

It’s frustrating that every single course on the market teaches you all about the software but nothing about how to edit. The industry doesn’t care how many buttons you’ve memorised, it cares whether you can craft powerful films.
