We live in amazing times.
The world has changed to the point where virtually anyone who really wants to can grab a camera and some editing software and create their own film and tv content. As a filmmaker, videographer, or film/tv editor you probably know how to push the buttons on your editing system of choice. Let’s face it, any trained monkey can push buttons. In the middle all the button-pushing, it might not always be clear when to push the buttons… and more importantly why.
Editmentor.com is a group of film and television professionals who know that storytelling through editing is a science and an art, that knowing which button to push is only as effective as the reason why you push it.
We’re here to help you think and learn like a successful editor by offering real-world insights, advice, and instructional materials that will help you in your quest for improving your storytelling.
Even better, we’re here to help you do what successful editors do – edit great footage. Using our connections in Hollywood and beyond, we’re bringing you high quality dailies and footage for you to practice with, and more importantly, promote your own skills and abilities. If you’re a student or a teacher, use the dailies in your editing classes. If you’re an editor looking to expand your demo reel – go for it.
Because when you think like a successful editor, and you show people that you can do what successful editors do, that’s when you achieve the results you’re looking for.
