Eberle has been working as a freelancer for the past several
years, including stints at Technicolor, where he served as digital intermediate
editor on Thor: The Dark World and Iron Man 3, and at EFILM, where he

Secret Life of Walter Mitty.
His background also includes two years as an

On Game of Thrones,
Eberle will collaborate with Chainsaw colorist Joe Finley and in-house post producer
Ainsley Dietz. “Jim is a great addition to our Game of Thrones staff,” said Chainsaw co-founder Bill DeRonde. “He
is a talented and team-oriented editor who has been working at a high level for
a long time.”
Eberle described himself as a fan of Chainsaw and its
co-founders Bill DeRonde and Mike Polito. 
He is impressed with the company’s growth and excited to have the
opportunity to work on Game of Thrones. “Each
episode of Game of Thrones is like a
1-hour feature film,” he observed. “It is heavy with visual effects, involves a
lot of work, and the standards are very high.”

and reality shows, including  The Academy Awards, The Kennedy Center Honors and American
