Veteran Editor Ivan Ladizinsky has been editing features for almost as long as I've been alive. That might make one of us feel old.
Ivan also cut the 300th episode of the global hit TV series Survivor, working on the show for 13 years, editing around 100 episodes and earning himself a Supervising Editor / Co-Producer role and 8 Emmy nominations for ‘Outstanding Picture Editing Non-Fiction’.
I'm delighted to be kicking off 2024 with this extended Issue of Cut/daily Meets... as Ivan has a tremendous array of wit and wisdom to share from using coloured markers on conjunctions to how not to get pigeonholed as an editor.
Thanks to Editor Roger Nygard for connecting me with Ivan. Roger has his own excellent Cut/daily Meets... interview here.
