Working with an editor requires one very simple component – trust. Trust that he can take your footage and assemble it in a way that makes the story better than the sum of its parts. As a director, you’re exhausted from the shoot, anxious to see a cut of the film, nervous to see what works and doesn’t work, and unless you have the proper dialogue with the editor, the process could be a disaster.

In the module you will learn techniques for communicating your vision to the editor, the editor’s workflow, and what you can do to get the best results possible in the editing room.
