[Tim Wilson] "Are you part of an editorial team on the post side of a production, production company, etc? (This would cover episodics and features for sure, but also in-house corporate, worship, etc.)"

This. I work in broadcast TV, and this is a majority of how this works for me. Most of the time I work in an office in Hollywood, but on occasion (like now) I work from home. Even when working from home, we have full crews that shoot footage that I edit.

ALTHOUGH...a few shows I work on are almost 80-85% stock footage. Not only news footage and stills, but we actually make episodes work with footage other people shoot and we use generically, or suggestively. Challenging, to be sure. When I go to NAB, the Pond5 people know me well. WEll, they know my company well.

[Tim Wilson] "What cameras/formats are you shooting/receiving?"

That isn't stock footage is mostly C300 lately. Some Sony XDCAM from time to time, but lately, mostly C300. A little DSLR footage thrown in from GH4's or 5Ds... and some shows have a smattering of GoPro.

I mainly work on Historical docs, and one particular reality show (Curse of Oak Island) and a couple recreation shows.
