I’m decompressing from “Maelstrom” and catching up on email that accumulated during the shoot, and I notice that Los Angeles-based editor Sharon Franklin is looking for gigs. She says,
Ideally, I’d love to get on a feature film or television series. I’m especially interested in working on projects for Discovery or The History Channel. I am a member of the Editors Guild, so I’m qualified to work union jobs. In fact, that would be my preference.
She’s one of the most “natural” editors I know. She has a sense of style and rhythm, but she doesn’t force them on the material: the story always comes first. I’ve seen some of the source material she’s had to work with, and she can pull coverage and continuity out of thin air. You could do a lot worse than have her cut your show. Contact Sharon Franklin at (310) 927-6220, or editrixstar at yahoo dot com
(We now return you to your regularly scheduled program, already in progress… “Maelstrom” notes will follow in the next three days, before I head off to CineGear Expo…)
