NOTE: This event is now on Tuesday, June 9th 3:00pm – 4:30pm PST

Ever wondered how to get more screen time in your TV and film work? Emmy winning editor Jonathan Goldman has written a book about just that – “How to Avoid the Cutting Room Floor”.  On set, a director might miss nuances in performance that only become apparent in post production. The editor then has to make decisions, which he shares with the people that have the power to hire (or not hire) you again.  In this seminar, he’ll be giving out tips about how to save a scene and make producers and directors want you back!  Jordan has worked for nearly 20 years in Hollywood, editing over 100 episodes of television drama, ranging from Homeland to Terriers to Fargo. He loves actors and his keen eye for performance and strong sense of story have earned him an Emmy and an American Cinema Editors Eddie. Jordan is a member of the Motion Picture Editors Guild, the American Cinema Editors, the Television Academy, and the Directors Guild of America.  Jordan gave up acting after high school musicals, but can still do a great Donald Duck impression.

His book is “How to Avoid the Cutting Room Floor:  An editor’s advice for on-camera actors”
