There are many video editing courses out there. What makes this one different from others is that we focus on developing the video editor mindset rather than teaching you how to push the buttons of your video editor software. There is no specific software you need to work with- anyone will do. The video editor has a lot to do with the story development. It is known to be said that the final draft of the script is written in the editing room, so knowing how to handle video editing software is not enough to become a video editor. If you are already working in the video editing profession, I’m sure you’ll find some of the lessons useful as they will teach you to work more professionally.
