ABOUT THIS MODULE

Hiring an editor can be a challenging and daunting process. Unlike hiring an actor or a cinematographer, his or her work is not as easily identifiable on screen. A simple scene may have been an editorial feat of genius to salvage poorly-shot footage, and a technically brilliant scene may have been a simple task thanks to an overabundance of footage.
 
In this module, you will learn how to find a qualified editor, how to assess an editor’s demo reel, tips for ensuring his vision and communication style match yours, and how to ultimately get the best person for the job.
 
Gain the skills to hire the most influential person in the crafting of your movie – the editor.
