A community to interact and learn with

In the Editing Chefs Community, editors like you are progressing their careers, mastering flow in the edit bay, and loading their tool belts with new editing techniques.

This is a place where I, as a host, care about your progress but I also want you to interact with other like-minded editors. 

Self-directed learning is great, but it never allows us to truly gauge how good we are and what we still need to learn. 

That’s why we have a private community hosted on the same platform as the video library. You don’t have to visit third-party tools to be part of it. The link between the community and the content is literally one click away.

It will be your resource but also a go-to group of industry colleagues hosted in a place without advertisers fighting for your attention and pulling you away from things you should be doing. 

Once you edit something in or outside the program curriculum, you can send it for feedback from me or other members of the community. 

We watch your edits and provide you with detailed notes and suggestions on how to improve. 

What Students Say

Constant and regular self-improvement

We have regular, interactive live sessions in the program. Some of them are topic-driven, and some of them are in AMA (Ask-Me-Anything) format. 

And finally, that’s why we have a bunch of special events every now and then. Things like a quarterly book club discussion (editing-related of course) or a semi-annual roundtable discussion with top-tier editors. 

I’ll host the next roundtable discussion in Spring 2023.

All of the Editing Chef members will be able to watch it live and have a chance to ask a question in the AMA session that will follow.

Last time my guest list was just extraordinary:

  • Jacob Bricca, ACE - Missing in Brooks County (2020), The Bad Kids (2008), and Lost in La Mancha (2002)
  • Simon Smith - Star Wars Andor (2022), Solos (2021), and Chernobyl (2019)
  • Elísabet Ronaldsdóttir - Bullet Train (2022), Kate (2021), Deadpool 2 (2018), and Atomic Blonde (2017)
  • Nedomansky Vashi, ACE - The Seed (2021), 6 Below: Miracle on the Mountain (2017), and Sharknado 2 (2014)
  • Audrey Simonaud - Lupin (2021), Taken 3 (2014), and 3 Days to Kill (2014)
  • Mike Hugo - Hypochondriac (2022), Death in Texas (2020), and The Florida Project (2017)

Hands-on approach and sense of accountability

I give assignments during most of the live sessions. It's not school so obviously they're not mandatory but I will be encouraging you to do them because I want you to grow. 

To get the skills you can use on your next paying job. 

Also, we'll start a short film editing project in January. Using real short film footage.

Short Film Dailies

We’ll be editing a horror short film "Ashes" together. You will get real film footage to download and, which you can even use for your reel!

This will be done as a special project we’ll start in February 2023.

We’ll have feedback sessions, screenings, and more.

Let's Summarize All You Get

  • Exclusive Community
    A private community for growth-minded editors committed to self-discovery, willing to practice their skills, and eager to create their own success.
    It’s a dedicated place to ask questions, practice, and grow editing skills. It’s hosted on the same platform as the content. No distractions fighting for your attention.

  • Regular Live Sessions
    This includes AMA office hours, sessions expanding on the topics from the Editing Quarks, quarterly book club discussions, quarterly film (or short film) club discussions, and after-hours get-togethers.

  • Special Events
    Like semi-annual Roundtable Discussions with high-tier editors and a chance to ask them questions.

  • Complete Short Film Dailies
    We’ll be editing a short film together. You will get all the dailies and you can even use a final edit in your reel! This will be done as a special project starting in February 2023. There will be feedback sessions, screenings, and more!

  • Feedback on Your Edits
    Once you edit something in or outside the program curriculum, you can send it for feedback from me or other members of the community.

  • Exclusive Discounts

So How Much Is It?

I’m not gonna do a sales pitch saying things like

"Normally this program costs six figures + a kidney but only today you can get it at an atomic fraction of the price."

Nah. I hate this type of manipulating offers. 

But I can tell that the price will only increase over time.

Right now you can join the Community for $169 a year (this includes live sessions, special events, and short film dailies). 

You also don’t have to worry about unexpected charges. I will email you a month before the renewal of a yearly plan. But you're probably gonna stick around as I will do a lot to make this year rich in new learning for you.

“The biggest takeaway for me is thinking about the "what" and the "why" behind the scenes. Thinking with that kind of mindset instead of just trying to make a cool edit. How am I going to emotionally engage the audience? Honestly, the best value for money I've spent on a course.”

“It pays for itself. Any job I work where I utilize any of the skills that I expanded my mind on is going to pay for itself. It made Editing Chef a no-brainer.”

“I am at a crucial point in my career path and, as expected, Editing Chef is a great help to my journey. I find the global aspects the most interesting: Mindset, prep work, asking yourself why you are doing this. (If the answer is storytelling, you're in the right place).”

Who's Piotr

I love editing. I love films. And I love sharing what I know.

I’ve spent the last 7 years editing commercials, corporate videos, documentaries, and short films while running my YouTube channel, so I'm no stranger to the frustration and stress that comes with running an editing business.

I won’t lie. It hasn’t always been easy - and it still isn't some days. But over the years I've developed proven practices I use to get me into the creative zone fast, manage multiple tasks, and make enough money to support my family AND still spend quality time with them.

When I heard many editors had the same struggles I had, I wanted to share what helped me breakthrough.

I created Editing Chef to give you no-stress strategies you can use to easily manage - and love - your editing business.

I can’t wait to cheer you on in Editing Chef.

See you inside!
