Film or video editors put together pictures and sound to produce pieces for film, television and the rapidly growing online market. Skilled editors can have a big influence on the quality of the finished piece.
In this job you will need to have a good sense of timing, to put together pieces that flow well. You will need attention to detail and patience. You will also need the ability to meet tight deadlines.
This is a job where your technical skills and experience, plus your personal qualities, are likely to be valued more highly by employers than qualifications. You can get experience through voluntary work, working for equipment hire companies or by being a 'runner'. Courses in film, video or media production will teach you some of the skills you will need.
