Top Five: assistant editor life skills 

By Brady Betzel

This piece is going to be a bit different for me. It’s the first time I’ve ever written something to be published that wasn’t a review. I was asked to share some tips and experiences from when I was an assistant editor. I thought, “Why not?”

During college I started as an intern on a Fox talk show called On Air with Ryan Seacrest, where I was able to make some very important contacts — some of whom I’m still in contact with 10 years later. Once we were told the show wasn’t renewed people started to flee and find work elsewhere (which happens a lot). It was the perfect time for me to swoop in and get at least a few months of real work under my belt before the show went officially dark.

I was lucky. They asked me to be a tape coordinator, and thus my post-production career was born. Truth be told I didn’t do much more than make sure tapes went to set for a news segment, but I made a few bucks and more importantly people saw I worked hard, like real hard. When interning I would wake up around 4am to get to work at around 5:30 or 6am to dig up news stories for the news segment that we would tape at noon. It was tough, but my parents instilled a great sense of duty and responsibility in me, so I just put my head down and worked.
