We started off walking through a daily work checklist from a low budget indie film, before moving through into a more conversational chat about different workloads and different production expectations. We talked about the career benefits of moving overseas, and the difference in opportunities afforded to those who make the move.
We touched on rates, work hours, and fair compensation. We expounded the virtues of being adaptable and complained about night-shift. We discussed the difficulties and benefits of working from home, and enthused about the ease of the Resolve proxy workflow.
Assistant Editors often work alone, so it’s great to get together to hear other people’s experiences and tribulations. We had a really enthusiastic response to this event, and the ASE is looking forward to continuing the Round Table next year.

An open forum and free-flowing conversation about interesting workflows, chin-scratching conundrums, and the hair-pulling, scream-inducing challenges that Assistant Editors face every day.
This year the Assistant Editors Round Table will be hosted by Andy Finn, Melissa McLeary and Nick Prior. With over 30 years combined experience as Assistant Editors, they’ve worked on a huge range of projects covering animation, drama, feature films, documentary, reality TV, and everything in between.
Using real world examples, they’ll talk through a number of problems they encountered
and the solutions that were used to deal with them.
Sharing of hilarious stories, well-earned scars and embarrassing mishaps
will also be greatly encouraged.
WHEN: Sunday 2nd May, at 3pm AEST
WHERE: via ZOOM
RSVP: firstname.lastname@example.org by Thursday 29 April.
