Jill is a Director, Editor and an Artist. She worked her way up in the editing department, until she became an Editor. Her credits include Undercovers, The Division, Switched at Birth, and Pretty Little Liars, among others. She then went on to direct the independent feature film, Life Inside Out, and then the penultimate episode of Switched at Birth.
She walked us through the last two minutes of working with film, transitioning to digital editing, and having a couple of very important conversations that got her to the next levels. She talks about editing and directing through the eyes of an artist. Her enthusiasm is contagious, her conversation juicy. This is a master class.
And she has documented her bad mothering as an art exhibition. You can find her website here:
BONUS! In this short episode, Jill talks about her philosophy as an Editor, and also describes a very cool art project she did in every square mile of Los Angeles at the time of the civil unrest after the Rodney King verdicts. As it turns out, some things in life are free.
