I'm thrilled to be joined by editor and director Roger Nygard for an insightful discussion all about the editorial process. Roger is known as an editor for his work on television series like Curb Your Enthusiasm, Veep, Who Is America, and countless others. But he is also an established director, lending his talents to The Office and The Bernie Mac Show, all while spearheading his own feature film projects too.
Throughout the interview, Roger shares his wealth of knowledge on the storytelling process, drawn from over 30 years of experience working in Hollywood. We discuss how filmmakers can "shoot for the edit", Roger's specific creative workflows, and loads of practical editing tricks. Roger also details his own history as a director and editor, along with lessons learned from working in the edit bay with great talents like Larry David, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, and Sacha Baron Cohen.
