Blake Carlile - Creator of AE Leap
Hey folks! I've been working as a professional Assistant Editor in Los Angeles for over 10 years. I'm a proud member of the Motion Picture Editors Guild and my credits include shows like Halt and Catch Fire, Lucifer, and God Friended Me. At the beginning of my career I gained a lot of experience working on commercials, promos, short films, and reality shows, but scripted television has always been my passion.
I'll be honest with you -- breaking into the scripted world is not easy. The job requires a unique skill set and a lot of experience to do well. Networking and job shadowing have traditionally been a great way to learn the process, but today's tight deadlines, fierce competition, and Covid-19 safety precautions are huge hurdles every up-and-coming Assistant Editor must now face. This is exactly why I made AE Leap.
I want to help you feel confident that you have the best strategy for landing that scripted dream job, and that you'll know exactly what to do once hired. Enjoy!
