The Athletic Nerd by Jason McKinnon

Welcome to After Then and Before Now v2.0.

The Athletic Nerd

Why 2.0?  This blog’s original home was I wanted the blog to have more functionality so a new site was born. is now officially live and the new home of my blog.

I’m pretty pumped to start blogging about 17 West’s upcoming films as well as my adventures in filmmaking.

I’m also going to be writing about my obsession with screenwriting, web development, graphic design and motion graphics. You’ll get a first hand look at life as a professional editor in television. Long nights, tight deadlines and tons of excitement.

As this is my first official post, I’m going to keep it brief.  With 3 film’s in pre-production and 2 feature screenplays in development, I’m extremely excited about the year ahead.  There is a lot going on and a massive amount of updates. Stay tuned.
