Tim Calandrello shares a fascinating story about how he was able to break into the industry through the editing room. We discuss his preference for NLE’s and the difference between scripted and documentary editing.
We also discuss the genesis of his production company, Twisted Pumpkin Inc. (a film and television production and marketing company that specializes in documentaries, theatrical trailers, and promo campaigns), as well as the importance of creating great trailers for documentary filmmakers.
Tim also shares the importance of referrals and explains what it was like working with the likes of Steven Spielberg, Nancy Spielberg, Morgan Spurlock, James Moll, Francis Ford Coppola, Meryl Streep, and many others. He has worked exclusively with musicians and composers including Hans Zimmer, Nathan Wang, The Crystal Method (who also scored Hired Gun), Foo Fighters, Everclear, and others.
Tim is putting the finishing touches on a new documentary feature for Hulu and another project for Netflix.
Art is one of Tim’s guilty pleasures. We wrap sharing a mutual appreciation for the LA art scene.
