Pigeonholing: How to Break Free From Genre

by Paddy Bird on
October 15, 2020

This week’s show is based on one of the most frequently asked questions we get at Inside The Edit. How do we break free from pigeonholing within the industry? How do we get into our dream genre?

So many people suffer from it. We work in one area of editing but have always considered it a stepping stone and never the destination for our career. It’s a difficult subject to discuss and has many factors at play.

But with some thought-out strategy, some bravery and some inside knowledge of how staffing decisions are made on productions, there's no reason why we can't jump free of the curse of pigeonholing and build the career we've always wanted.

We’re also making another exciting announcement about our new Bootcamp live training, so stay tuned for that at the end of the show.
