Trailers are one of the most popular forms of media on the Internet, but very few people know who really makes them, and how much work goes into those 1-3 minutes of footage. The Cutdown is a podcast about the art of trailer editing, the people working behind the scenes of this unique industry, and the latest news in both movie and game trailers. Hosted by Hollywood trailer editor Ric Thomas and indie game trailer maker Derek Lieu.
