Editor Brad Conlin is the finishing editor for James Corden's daily talk show; The Late Late Show.
That means he has to hit a tight turn-around deadline, with no wiggle room, every single day.
What I loved about Brad's answers is the motif of an encouraging/releasing spirit;
- It pays to ask for advice!
- Don't be afraid to ask for help.
- Just say yes... even if you don't know it all (you'll learn!)
- Just edit.
- You don't need anyone's permission to do this!
My biggest takeaway from what Brad generously shares in his answers below?
I wish I had sought more advice from other editors who do these kinds of shows, so I could ask for the right kind of help, and anticipate some of the challenges for a long-running show.
