Howdy. You’ve been asking for more instruction, and we’ve been listening.
We’ve also been looking at what’s available for tutorial videos online, and frankly, they’re usually SO technical no one can understand them, or the person giving them sounds like a robot, or it’s just a video talking about how to press buttons. While tutorials on how to press the buttons are valuable to a point, we believe it’s more important to talk about ideas and concepts – you’re smart enough to figure out the button-pressing yourself on whatever tools you use.
The content we’re producing here at Editmentor is valuable. It contains real-world instruction from a Hollywood editor whose work has been seen by millions of people all around the world. It’s the kind of insight other people offer in packages, charging stupid, ridiculous amounts of money. We don’t do that – we’re here to spread Hollywood storytelling skills to the world outside Hollywood at a price anyone can afford. The videos on this page are a FREE introduction and example of what you can expect from the other great content we’re offering.
First video: Editmentor Avid Tour, Intro to Tutorials (dur. 3:07). Editmentor founder Jeff Bartsch shows off the glamorously-lit Avid editing bay and talks about why he’d show up in a t-shirt.
Next video: Editmentor Tutorial: Imitating Physical Film – Top 4 Elements. Jeff discusses the idea of people wanting their videos to look like film, and the top 4 elements that occur in physical film that don’t occur in video. (dur 5:39)
