Finding the story in post



Finding the story in post


Recorded on November 17, 2021

The STAR Producer Program hosted a webinar featuring a panel of Canada’s leading story editors, as they drew on their practical experience to outline best practices in developing storylines during post-production editing.

With large amounts of footage and ever-evolving plot points, tackling story in non-scripted production can be a daunting task. Drawing on their vast experience, a panel of Canada’s leading story editors discussed finding story in the editing suite. To help producers prepare and tackle their next non-scripted project, panelists shared details of the roadblocks they’ve faced, problem-solving techniques they’ve developed, and what it takes to form compelling story in post-production. Moderated by Jean Parsons (Vice-President, Unscripted Development, Lark Productions), the panel included:

  • Dinae Robinson (Writer, Producer, Taken)
  • Margot Daley (Story Editor, The Great Canadian Baking Show, Love It or List It Vacation Homes)
  • Sarah Sharkey Pearce (Showrunner, Executive Producer, Yukon Gold, The Devil You Know, Never Say Goodbye)
  • Ruth Nanda (Story Editor, Backroad Truckers, Rust Valley Restorers, Save My Reno)
  • Dylan Wertz (Story Producer, The Bachelor Canada, Paramedics: Life on the Life)
