#311 - Annoying Things Editors Do

Know your own bad press.

That was a piece of advice a director once gave me as a young editor, as a way of being able to know where your areas for improvement are.

Thinking about 'our own bad press' here are a few common things editors do that maybe other folk in Production and Post find annoying...

  • Retorting “That probably won't work” to any suggestion
  • Unilaterally knowing better than Production
  • Grumbling about last minute changes
  • Saying “We don't have that.
  • Terrible Time Estimation

And therefore you can stand out from the crowd by just not doing them.
