Overshare Podcast: SNL Editor Adam Epstein on Optimistic Nihilism & the Power of Great Teams
WORKING NOT WORKING
Overshare is a podcast and event series hosted by Working Not Working co-founder Justin Gignac. In a world of carefully curated portfolio sites and Instagram feeds, Justin sits down with his favorite creatives to get past the highlights and discuss the tough stuff we don't talk about in public often enough.
For Episode 4 of Season 2, Justin talks to editor Adam Epstein, who's been at Saturday Night Live the past 9 seasons and has edited over 100 digital shorts, including all of your favorites. He's also the editor of Documentary Now on IFC, as well as feature films and commercials. Despite his countless successes, Adam doesn't take himself or the highs and lows that come along with being a creative too seriously. It's a really fascinating discussion of what goes on behind the scenes of a historic show that's managed to gain even more stature in the past couple years. And hearing Adam's process for how he approaches his craft and handles the pressures of time restraints and audience size is really insightful for fellow creatives.
