Transcription, captioning, and subtitling are challenging and interesting areas of work for editors, from both process and service-delivery perspectives. To do this work, an editor needs responsive thinking skills, a full editor’s toolkit, and the ability to break down a job into its constituent parts…and then to recombine the parts to best represent how the text is performed. Please bring your questions!

Kelly Maxwell is a co-founder (in 1994) of Line 21 Media Services, a Vancouver-based boutique service company specializing in transcription, captioning, and subtitling. Every day in her work brings new challenges, new stories, and new material. She looks forward to sharing her experiences.

Bonus! Enter the draw at the meeting for free admission to one of EAC-BC’s professional development seminars.
