How do I build my profile as an editor in this industry? I feel fully capable but I’m stuck in purgatory between being an assistant and full time editor. It’s frustrating.

Website question: is it bad to have a few spots that are over five years old? I keep them down at the bottom and the majority are much newer so they sort of serve as a ‘best of’ my older work.

Pitch videos. It has now become standard to be handed a vo script with no thought as to what’s on screen. When did the editor's job become thinking up the images as well?
