For film and video editors, having a standing desk can have a positive effect on your working habits, health, and efficiency.
I’m a freelance editor and YouTube creator so I spend a major part of a day at my desk.
I’ve wanted to have a standing desk for a while. When I finally got one about 2 months ago, I was super excited to give it a go to compare how it affects my well-being, productivity, and how much I move during the day.

I also stumbled upon Zack Arnold’s podcast featuring a conversation with Murch, and I strongly encourage you to listen to that great episode. There’s one quote from that stayed with me:
