Of all my talented TAKEN IN collaborators, I’ve known my editor the longest.
Jeter Rhodes and I met in the late 1980’s. He was making videos with Sammy Bean then…on a VHS camcorder. They were in middle school.
We reconnected as adults and he edited the documentary BRAGGING RITES: THE CAROLINA-CLEMSON RIVALRY for Jeff Sumerel and me. He’d graduated from The Citadel and the University of North Carolina School of the Arts since I’d seen him last. We became fast colleagues. And since that time we’ve worked on many smaller projects…most recently, GOOD LIFE.
Jeter and I have set up a Final Cut edit suite in my basement and are having a blast fitting all these gorgeous images together. Finally! We’re making a feature-length, narrative movie.
Jeter is a cinema genius. He thoroughly understands the language of film…how shots turn into scenes and scenes turn into movies. And he is always excited, full of ideas, ready to work. He’s a creative problem solver like few others.
Jeter daylights as a Weekend Editor for One Minute News.
