Go inside the cutting room with Emmy-winning editor Jordan Goldman, A.C.E. (Homeland, 24: Live Another Day, Masters of Sex, The Shield) as he explains the key things professional actors should -- and shouldn't do – to ensure their performance makes it to the screen. He'll show you how and why directors, showrunners, and editors decide whether your performance stays in the show – or gets cut out.

Acting for the camera can be challenging. Arm yourself with the best tips and advice you can get, from an insider uniquely positioned to be your guide into a process that few actors ever see or understand.

"Whether you are just starting to break into the film and television industry, or you're already working and want to refine your on-camera technique, "How to Avoid the Cutting Room Floor" is a must read! I wish I'd had a book early in my career that gave me a fraction of the insights and advice that Jordan provides here. Grab this invaluable book by one of the television industry's most talented and respected editors."
- Michael Chiklis, Emmy & Golden Globe winning actor

"In the cutting room we see the same mistakes over and over. Jordan's book is full of useful tips to help you make the cut."
- Alex Gansa, showrunner, Homeland
