Tell The Damn Story #148: HOW TO TELL THE DAMN STORY SUMMER SERIES (Part 3) EDITING = Clear, Cut, Delete

The Boys Are Back -- With Back Up!

It's the THIRD WEEK, And Alex and Chris are back with Part 3 of their month-long supersize workshop, the “HOW TO TELL THE DAMN STORY SUMMER SERIES.”   Pop culture king Caseen Gaines and spoken word poet and children’s book creator Toney Jackson have returned. This time we added on some slam poet winning, co-founder of BlackNerdProblems, and author of the new book, "WE WERE ALL SOMEONE ELSE YESTERDAY," OMAR HOLMON.

Now it's time to discuss The editing process!  How to get down and get the work done.  Remember this series takes up episodes 146 - 149, leading up to episode 150 StoryFest (the three-sectioned, weekend long interview clips package) to celebrate this milestone.
