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!

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.
