CS4 Blog 11 – Post Production: Editing

Editing (verb) – the state in production where you realise all your mistakes, all the shots you have to reshoot, all the issues with audio you didn’t realise on set. May also cause editor (noun) to become overly agitated and homicidal.

Yes, it’s that time again. Time to edit and time to see who needs to be fired (except this is school and unfortunately you cannot fire your classmates). Editing is the longest, most tedious part of production. The editor(s) must be people who are long suffering, have a keen eye and ear for detail, and share the vision of the director.

Editing is one of the final steps in production and all the raw footage is passed on to the editor for them to sort and put together in a way that not only makes sense, but tells a great story.

Future editors, you have your work more than cut out for you. Good luck!
