About the Author
Zack Arnold is an award-winning film and television editor (Empire, Underground, Burn Notice, and The Bannen Way) and documentary director (GO FAR: The Christopher Rush Story), as well as the creator of the Fitness In Post program. He has been featured in American Cinema Editors magazine, the Huffington Post, Forbes, Creative Cow, postPerspective, ProVideo Coalition, and Art of the Guillotine, and has been a guest on numerous post-production and business podcasts.
Zack knew he wanted to become a film editor by age 9, after shooting a home movie running around the house with his older brother. Zack was less than enthusiastic about the production process, but after adding the score of The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly to their raw footage, he became hooked on editing. After editing numerous side projects in high school and then graduating from the University of Michigan with a degree in film/video studies, Zack moved to Los Angeles and started his first industry job as an assistant editor for a movie trailer company. He was promoted to editor 5 months later, won a Golden Trailer Award for the first trailer he ever cut professionally, and has been cutting for the last 14 years. He has edited over 100 movie trailers, featurettes, studio and independent feature films, web series, and television series, and more weddings than he cares to mention.
