The Total Tutor Neil Haley will interview Veteran Film Editor Lawrence Jordan of Master the Workflow.

Larry Jordan (known professionally as Lawrence Jordan) has amassed more than 45 professional credits, working on successful films such as Fallen, Assassins, Deuce Bigelow: Male Gigolo and television series including CSI: Miami and NYPD Blue.  Although he came a family with roots in the entertainment industry, he watched his friends struggle to break through into an industry notorious for being nearly completely walled-off to newcomers.  From that came the desire to help those who aspired to a career in film editing, but faced the classic conundrum of not being able to gain practical experience because they were too inexperienced to get a job.

Larry developed Master the Workflow with his friend, Richard Sanchez.  A successful assistant film editor today, Richards was himself once on the outside looking in.  Both men understood that film schools were typically and woefully inadequate when it came to educating students as to what to expect once they enter the working world.  While great for learning technical skills and theoretical knowledge, they knew theory went out the window once one is answering loud and demanding phone calls from a producer who is desperately trying to make an air or theatrical release date.
