On this week's episode of Cinematic Immunity, we talk to Dan McMellen, post-production supervisor, editor, director, producer, and all around awesome podcast guest, about how he got his start in the entertainment industry, mastering his craft, and what professionals like himself look for in an assistant. Plus, he separates the fact from the fiction when it comes to editing one oft-maligned programming genre: reality TV shows.
