first_imgExplore the nuances of cutting comedy and drama together with experienced comedy editor Kent Kincannon in the Sundance 2019’s “Before You Know It.”As any standup comic or improv comedian can tell you, sometimes the funniest moments come from the darkest places. Before You Know It, which premiered at Sundance 2019, directed by and starring Hannah Pearl Utt (co-written and co-starred with her real-life friend Jen Tullock), explores the odd complexities between humor and everyday tragedy.The Sundance website describes the film as “equal parts madcap comedy, adult coming-of-age story, and poignant drama, Before You Know It gleefully defies categorization, and that is its genius.”We sat down with veteran comedy editor Kent Kincannon to talk about his improv roots and editing a feature on Adobe Premiere Pro. We explored how he found his way into mainstream comedy editing and working with Pearl Utt to craft a feature that is real and intriguing, while still finding the funny. PB: Would you suggest your way to others?KK: I’d kind of like to take some editing classes. In a way I wish I had made it up through the assistant editor world so that you could have mentors and pay your dues, but I’ve found success just jumping into it on my path.PB: Coming from comedy, what were the challenges in editing something with more drama and tragedy?KK: I had to lean on Hannah a lot for a lot of the drama. There’s a lot of mental illness, codependency, family shit going on in the movie that’s kind of familiar. I have my own brand of Texan “don’t talk about your problems” stuff, so I didn’t understand as well as Hannah did on a lot of the character motivations and stuff.It’s really just deciding what really needs to be on the screen in any given scene. “Why is Rachel acting like this?” kind of questions. She was there with me the whole time, and it was a fun dialogue where we even could work through things just by me asking questions for motivations.Cover image via Before You Know It (Sundance).You can find out more about Kent Kincannon at his website.Looking for more editing advice and filmmaking interviews?

It’s co-written by her best friend and co-star Jen Tullock. It’s very specific to her life and theater, being homeschooled, and really interesting flavor that’s alien to me. I grew up in Texas, and she grew up in Santa Barbara. A lot of the themes and characters were pretty different from what I usually think about or edit.I’m usually just comedy as much as possible, so it was a fun challenge to get into her head. The movie is just like, I don’t know. Someone described it as “trauma-dy” they lose a family member, and the characters have to figure out their lives.PB: How did you originally get into editing?KK: I was in Austin, and I moved to New York after working an office job for years. I wasn’t doing much film stuff in Austin, so I went to New York and fell into improv comedy pretty quickly. At the UCB theater, I started making videos. Like, you know, people’s web series and sketches. I got on a house team and ended up working with a lot of funny people who have TV shows now, just from doing improv in New York.The UCB sketch team job led to a job at College Humor. Which is a big thing; I remember being on the internet and seeing it for years. It was the coolest job ever, and when they moved to LA, I moved with them. A sketch I made there became a TV show, and that TV show got me in the union, and since then I’ve been able to stay in connection with people I’ve met through comedy. It’s been a pretty interesting, slow and steady climb from comedy videos to Sundance now.PB: Do you have any advice for getting into comedy editing?KK: It’s really hard to edit comedy alone. And I know that’s what a lot of people end up doing at first. Finding people who are good at it, or better at it (preferably than you are) who want to do it with you is really the way to do it. At the UCB theater, nobody I knew had any money. But everybody would make themselves available to work for free because videos were exposure. You could get really good talent, and that attracted professional-level work so that people would hope to get paid one day down the line.I’d say go to your local comedy theaters or clubs and on the lower end and offering to do free work for people from your favorite sketch shows. That’s kind of the entry level, but it’s true at every level.PB: Where did you learn to edit?KK: I went to film school, but I mostly took film theory classes. I always just made stuff. There was a film club where we made videos and challenged each other every week to do in-camera movies or other fun kind of projects. It’s really just from high school until now, just figuring it out and plowing through it trying to find bigger and bigger stuff.last_img read more

first_imgPolice have arrested two persons on the charge of beating a one-and-a-half-year-old child to death in a fight that followed an objection by the infant’s father to a child from the accused family urinating in the open at Bagaspur village in Sagar district of Madhya Pradesh on October 1. The accused have been identified as Ram Singh and his son Umesh.“As a six-year-old boy was urinating on the road, the child’s father objected to it. And in turn, the boy’s father and grandfather attacked attacked him with lathis. The 18-month-old boy he was holding suffered blows and died on the spot,” Amit Sanghi, Sagar Superintendent of Police, told The Hindu.“There is a running feud between the two tribal families,” he said.A case was registered under Section 302 [punishment for murder] of the Indian Penal Code. The injured father is being treated at a local hospital.The case had no similarities to the Shivpuri case where two children were beaten to death for allegedly defecating in public, Mr. Sanghi stated, adding, “There is confusion. There is no case of open defecation here.”last_img read more

In any case, his exit sparked off a controversy.Sunil GavaskarFrom the time the Kochi franchise was rigged up, there has been speculation about the role of a top former cricketer. Outing Gavaskar just a day before the crucial IPL Governing Council meeting at Nagpur only confirmed the top cricketer’s name. Holidaying in Dubai, Gavaskar spoke to sandeep bamzai on the eve of the ipl Governing Council meeting about his actual involvement with the Kochi franchise. Excerpts:Q. What is the extent of your involvement with the controversial Kochi franchise of the IPL?A. This is not the first time I have been approached by a potential franchise. In the past too there have been several approaches to help on the cricketing aspect but nothing actually materialised.Q. Has a formal offer been made to you by the Gaekwads?A. Till I get a formal offer in writing, it is just like all previous approaches made to me. It is only after a formal written approach is made that I will be in a position to answer questions about monetary aspects and any stake in the franchise. Of course, before that we have to wait for the BCCI’s decision on the matter of retaining the franchise or not.Q. Why did you quit from the Governing Council after being an integral member of the executive from the beginning?advertisementA. I opted out because I feel like Tiger Pataudi that since the IPL is a commercial enterprise, those who give their expertise, experience, inputs and time should be remunerated. You are aware that I have been a coach and consultant for the Indian team in the past and did not ask for nor got a rupee for doing so. I thought it was my duty to do so for what Indian cricket has given me and I will still do so if asked. But the IPL is a commercial enterprise.last_img read more
