Commercial video editors, and those who love them

Anyone deal with back pain? It’s to the point where I can’t edit for more than an hour before it gets intense. Seems like unless my head is perfectly centered over my spine it agitates it. Not sure...

U go to the bar, got your drinks fast, :) time, but you forget the name of the bar and are down to go wherever next time. Does this feel like the creative/editor relationship when picking an editor?

Roll call. How much experience? Do you staff in a boutique? An agency? Freelance? If freelance, do you usually work in agency studios, prodcos...? Do you bring on a post producer to help on big jobs?
