This week’s guest is Mathew Jones, and while he’s not a household name, you’ve almost certainly seen his work. For he is one of the many who works behind the scenes in the world of movies. More specifically, Mathew Jones is an editor who cuts together movie trailers.
That’s right. This guy has worked in and around Hollywood for more than a decade, and after realizing he didn’t necessarily want to be in front of the camera, he found his niche as a film editor. His recent career has focused primarily on trailers and TV spots for major motion pictures. Without giving away too much of this week’s episode, he did work on previews for The Interview. Yes, that Interview with James Franco and Seth Rogen that got pulled from theaters due to controversy with North Korea.
Needless to say, if you’re a movie fan and want a look at something we all see all the time but likely have no idea how it gets made, this is an episode you don’t want to miss. Join us on Wednesday, September 23 for this tremendous installment of the Jon of All Trades Podcast. Available on iTunes and Stitcher.
