What editors want to learn…

Results from 3 Question Survey

I posted a quick 3 question survey the other week, mostly to find out what I should be blogging about but also to see what other editors in the industry were experiencing.

As an editor, which new skills do you feel would most enhance your skill set?

2. What are your top three ways of finding new work/clients?

3. What content would you like to see more of on editing blogs?

This question was pretty open ended so I’ll just summarise some of the common responses into a few phrases. The first phrase summarises the greatest number of responses:

More on the craft and storytelling decision making processes. Cut by cut breakdowns of scenes or sequences and the reasoning behind the choices made. Hearing from feature professionals discussing their work.

And to a lesser extent:

How to gain more editing work and technical training.

Feel free to comment below with any questions you’d like to be included next time around…
