The Screenster Podcast

Cheryl is featured in the latest episode of Georgie Grier’s The Screenster Podcast. Each episode of Screenster takes a close look at some aspect of the film and television industry. Cheryl and Georgie had a great discussion about the editing process and how the cutting room works. It’s a more general chat and not too technical so would be good for any film-loving folk who are curious how the process works.
