What do you do in your role?
As an editor I get to take all the awesome footage caught by our team, cut it together, mix the audio, animate the text, add logos, and polish the colour. Being the last link in the line of production means that if anything doesn’t look perfect… it will get blamed on me. That’s a good motivator to deliver the best looking videos that I can.
What do you actually do?
I didn’t realise how much of an editor’s time was spent watching progress bars slowly fill up to 100%. Because of all the transferring, downloading, rendering, exporting and uploading, I get a lot of practice counting to 100. And sometimes I also edit videos.
What do your team think you do?
…Push the right buttons in the right order and have pretty videos pop out.
Most embarrassing story?
Luckily we’ve got enough QC in place that I haven’t had anything too embarrassing happen to me at work yet. I’ll let you know if anything changes.
