Job Information

Video editors consult and collaborate with directors and producers to assemble movies, documentaries, commercials, and instructional videos.

A video editor evaluates a body of film or video footage, chooses among the shots he or she prefers, and assembles them into a coherent whole that tells a story or presents a viewpoint. Duties include consulting with the director and producer about storylines, viewing and making logs of raw footage, trimming and splicing footage, and adding sound effects, special effects, and music.

Required Education

A video editor can improve their job prospects with a bachelor’s degree in film studies (or a related field), experience from an apprenticeship, or a combination of both. However, the position requires no formal education. Courses in a film studies degree program might include video directing, set design and lighting, conventional video editing, digital video editing, film editing, sound recording, sound editing, digital imaging, and computer animation.

Required Skills

A video editor needs to have in-depth knowledge of video editing software, as well as sound artistic judgment. They must also have excellent communication skills and be willing to collaborate with other artistic professionals to produce an outstanding movie, television show, commercial, or music video.

Job Information

Video editing assistants assist film editors and directors and accrue valuable experience that can help them move up to senior positions of their own. They work closely with the editor and director of a production, keeping track of all shots in a database and often editing some pictures themselves.

While there is no education necessarily required to become a video editing assistant, there are several degree programs in film and video editing that will help one’s resume and chances of getting noticed. Students must take classes that will help them master computer programs like Final Cut Pro, Avid and Adobe Premier Pro and After Effects, and become experienced in using Apple computers if they wish to stand out from the pack. Potential video editing assistants must also be comfortable with video and lighting equipment because they may be used in varying roles on a film set.

Video editing assistants must be familiar with database management skills, which involves keeping track of all shots and coding them with numbers and timecode. Video editing assistants must also possess the skills to understand the working of a movie, television and commercial film set, since they may be asked to perform a job outside of the video editing specialty.
