Often if Joanna Naugle is doing her job accurately, you don’t discover she’s there in any respect. As an editor on comedies like Ramy and Huge Mouth, she’s helped jokes land and performances sing, sustaining the rhythm and snipping the extraneous moments you won’t have seen however positively would have felt. 

After which got here The Bear, the propulsive dramedy created by Christopher Storer, who introduced Naugle on to the present after their work collectively on Ramy. It’s not simply the frenetic tempo of the present that makes you discover the modifying, the way in which dialogue will overlap or scenes will change right away. There are insert photographs of knives reducing or pots overflowing, after which photos from fully exterior the scenes themselves — childhood pictures, Chicago skylines, overdue payments. Every new reduce brings you additional into the irritating kitchen at The Beef, or into Carmy’s frazzled thoughts. It‘s the sort of modifying you discover, however solely as a result of it’s so profitable at drawing you additional in. 

On this week’s Little Gold Males podcast Naugle joins to debate how she turned an editor after attending NYU movie college, and the way she and Storer labored collectively to seek out the voice of The Bear in season one, solely to alter their very own guidelines within the more moderen two. Naugle, an Emmy nominee for season one, was again for the second season and calls it funnier than the primary — proof that as The Bear continues, it might proceed to alter, as effectively. 

Hearken to the dialog above, and subscribe to Little Gold Males on Apple Podcasts or anyplace else you get your podcasts. You possibly can learn excerpts from the interview beneath. 

The Bear is so distinctive, and when it premiered final summer season, I do not assume anybody knew it was going to grow to be this large phenomenon. It is comedy, it is drama, and I do know Ramy has parts of that too, however was it arduous to wrap your head round what it was going to be once you first began on it?

Yeah, seeing the primary dailies, I used to be like, “What’s…” Everybody’s simply yelling over one another? This kitchen is chaos. After speaking to Chris extra concerning the model of the present and the imaginative and prescient for the present, I simply completely acquired it. I like the thought of simply actually desirous to make the viewer really feel like they had been standing within the kitchen alongside these characters and never spending plenty of time with exposition, not explaining what their lingo meant, their shared language.

It was a strategy to simply instantly present the dynamic between all these completely different characters. They’ve years of expertise working collectively, residing at The Beef, the household dynamics of the Berzatto household. I like that Chris had sufficient confidence to simply throw folks into the deep finish, begin the present with such a fast-paced introduction to Carmy, after which simply giving folks area to fall in love with these characters and see their collaboration come to life.
