After deciding to become a professional video editor, I am faced with the challenge of loving something I know almost nothing about. I’ll admit, the two student videos I have edited were mediocre, but I have never felt so awesome or so fulfilled after completing something. So: The Learning Curve. Already well into my summer I’m going to be voraciously researching, reading, networking and finally testing my new knowledge of video editing, all documented here. First off, I got my film prof to recommend some summer reading.
#1 on the list? Walter Murch’s “In the Blink of an Eye”.
Let’s get some skills. Wish me luck.
