Sydney and I have a lot in common with both of us working in post-production so predominantly. We talked the DGC, editing independent feature length films when she was 21 years old, how to manage client expectations, Sydney's adventures biking across Canada and down to the United States.

Other topics include how creatives work ourselves so much we can get sick, and how it led to her having panic attacks and thinking she might be dying, searching for jobs online, the death of independent film, safety on set, stress and anxiety, the astronomical amounts of money that is spent in the film industry that could be spent saving the world instead.

The J-Cut Podcast is a weekly podcast hosted by me - independent filmmaker Mike Chantaj - where I sit down to talk with other creative people about their careers, passions and lives. The hope is to expand people's ideas about what kinds of creative careers are out there, be it in film, art, music and more.
