FCG030 – The Cranky Editor (feat. James Miller)


This interview was without a doubt the most fun I’ve ever had on The Grill. You may know him as The Cranky Editor, or Chairman Meow. James Miller has been using Final Cut Pro since Version 1 but avoided FCPX until January of this year. He has a very interesting story in which he claims the biggest motivation for jumping the FCPX was actually Premiere Pro. I promise you’ll love this episode.

Great quotes from the show.

Douglas Adams

“Anything that is in the world when you’re born is normal and ordinary and is just a natural part of the way the world works.

“Anything that’s invented between when you’re fifteen and thirty-five is new and exciting and revolutionary and you can probably get a career in it.

“Anything invented after you’re thirty-five is against the natural order of things.”

Chairman Meow

“You can’t polish a turd but you can roll it in glitter.”
