Well, it's been one week with the newbie.
He still has a ways to go. He's still a little green around certain edit procedures, so I suggested he bring a notepad and write down step by step how to do some of them. He's getting better but he's still slower than I'd like.
I feel a bit like a drill sgt trying to get him up to speed since in the event I'm not there, he needs to take the lead. Right now I'm still doing the lion's share of the edits, which makes me exhausted mentally. The good thing is that the show is often edited much sooner than usual - probably due to my panicking
