📽 Inside the Mind of a Video Editor - Two Fundamentals

July 8, 2019

 

 

Learning video editing is no walk in the park. Many dive into the technical details of video editing - the process and tools - and miss a fundamental process of how an editor "thinks."  

 

I talk about the two things pros do while editing (and may never think about or realize they do this) and how this skill can make or break the resulting video or film edit.

 

Much like driving a car, it takes some patience and practice to develop this skill, but once you do, you'll be a much better (and faster) video editor no matter what genre you work in.

 

I hope you enjoy this very loose and open discussion format as much as I do, and I look forward to the upcoming live stream Q&A sessions next week.

 

If you have any suggestions for future subjects you'd like to see covered, please leave them in the comments below or email me, bfm@basicfilmmakeruniversity.com.

 

Thanks for watching and thanks for your support.
