[Andrew Kimery] "I've been to industry events where the presumption by the panelists was that everyone working in unscripted TV really wanted to work in scripted TV since scripted TV was 'real' editing and unscripted was just unadulterated crap."

I can totally understand the preference for working in scripted tv but not just because it is more respected within the industry. Editing non-fiction or "reality" tv is hard, real real hard. I spent years editing that style of television programming and I'm currently wrapping up work on a 24:30 non-fiction medical show which was almost completely unscripted (except for the show host stand ups and the tease vo's) and it was crafted in the traditional documentary style of building the story through interview bites alone. There is nothing easy about editing that style.

I Hate Television. I Hate It As Much As Peanuts. But I Can’t Stop Eating Peanuts.
