I reach out today not only as a BFA graduate from CU's Film Studies Program in 2005 (prior to the department’s name change), but also as the Co-Director of the American Cinema Editors Internship Program. Each year, our program selects two official interns to visit multiple editing rooms from various practices (feature films, scripted and unscripted television) with the goal of launching a career in editorial. Before I was the co-director of this program, I was an ACE intern in 2006. This internship program provided me a network of friends and colleagues that has helped me grow in my professional career. Several other universities know of the benefits of the ACE Internship Program, which gives us a disproportionate number of candidates from those schools. I’d love to even out the odds and see more applicants from CU that have the same enthusiasm from editing that I had when I was a student. If you know of any students who are interested in a career in editorial, please tell them about our program.
Since the inception of the ACE Internship Program, many of those who have gone through the program have gone on to have successful careers in editorial. Here are just a few:
• Hunter Via (2001 intern) - Editor of The Chi, Snowfall, The Walking Dead – ACE Eddie Winner
• Joi McMillon (2004 intern) - Editor of Moonlight, Girls, Togetherness – Academy Award Nominated
• Amelia Allwarden (2015 intern) - Editor of Westworld, PEN15, Little Fires Everywhere
• Gretchen Schroeder (2016 intern) - Assistant Editor on Avatar: The Way of Water, Post PA on Star Wars: The Last Jedi
