Video Production Editing in Vancouver Done Right

Mash-up of Technicality and Creativeness!

Video production editing and post-production professionals are some of the hardest roles to fill in. I have been surprised at how many editors who don’t know simple visual effects and some production editors cannot cut a story.

One of the biggest ways of overcoming this hurdle is simply finding people who have experience and technical training.

From there, we work directly in a collaborative atmosphere. Moreover, I work with our video production editors in the office.  So I can review works immediately and provide lots of feedback. 

Professional Editing Skills

Find a great editor with mastery over the technical skills, so you can get past the use of the program in order and be fully creative. Like an artist, one must master the brushes on the canvas first.

Once the technical skills are out of the way, you can work directly with the editor in a one-on-one collaborative atmosphere. Of course, the mark of a great editor is someone who provides enthusiasm and the ability to collaborate. It is by going back and forth with feedback, comments, and revisions. Thus, mastering the art of video production editing.

So to summarize, here are the most crucial points when looking for a great editor;

  • Mastery of the technical skills
  • Previous editing experience and samples related to your niche
  • A willingness to collaborate
  • Curiosity and excitement, maybe even passionate about your production
  • A timeline which fits your deliverable
  • A budget which fits your financial expectations
