As one of the top five production sites in America, Georgia has a booming film industry. Locals, not studio employees, perform many of the behind-the-scenes jobs on these film sets.
Video editors perform post-production work on any filmed project, from blockbuster movies to videos of corporate events. Students graduate from film programs with the ability to edit film or digital video, and an understanding of effective visual storytelling. They work in a variety of industries, including animation, film, and television. They may prefer to work as freelancers, join a studio or production company, or even launch their own company.
A career as a film and video editor typically requires formal training and education, preferably obtaining a bachelor's degree or higher. Continuing education to keep up with technology is also encouraged.
Coursework in film programs covers more than the editing process. To succeed in this career, students require a full understanding of how to tell a story visually. This includes screenwriting, pre- and post-production work, and graphics. Typical courses in a film program include:
Students also take classes that help them deal with creative and varying personality types, as well as core classes like mathematics and science.
Editors have a wide variety of available resources online. These provide valuable networking opportunities, support in finding work, and continuing education opportunities that increase your value as a film editor.
