John Buck has been an editor since he needed a way to cut his Super 8mm home movie rushes for screening in a makeshift neighborhood cinema, and to enter his work in young filmmakers’ festivals.

After being fired from his full-time job as a junior agency TV producer, John was advised by his father to ‘get a job that people can understand what it is that you do’. He returned to editing, and created a thirty year long career that spans MTV Awards, SuperBowl commercials and high rating TV shows.

He looked for a comprehensive history of editing in book form, but couldn’t find one.

Buck then spent four years researching and writing ‘Timeline – a History of editing’.
