Film editing is now something almost everyone can do at a simple level and enjoy it, but to take it to a higher level requires the same dedication and persistence that any art form does.

Walter Murch

Talk to any serious filmmaker and they will tell you that a film is made in the editing room. You can have the worst script and production ever and still save it in the editing room if you have a good editor. Inversely, you can have the best script and best production ever and lose it all in the editing room if the editor is not that good. An editor is someone who knows when to cut and when not cut in a way that lets the story emerge and lets the characters have a sense of purpose. An editor has to be a connoisseur of history, sociology, psychology, art, dance music, literature, and more to feel the edit, give it rhythm, enhance the emotions, and manipulate the viewer’s perspective of reality and fantasy. There are two types of editors in the world; The ones who simply just operate the editing machine and the ones who create and sculpt using the machine as a tool. Walter Munch puts it very eloquently in the above quote; sure! anyone can use the multitude of editing software out there today, but not everyone can really edit.

With over 25 years of editing experience (and I am only 43 years old at the time of this writing) I have edited a very long list of short and feature films and documentaries, music videos, promotional videos, and socially engaged cinema, using anything from old analog editing sweets to the multitude of NLEs found today from Avid, Adobe, Apple, Blackmagic, Lightworks and more.
