On average, your visual story will go through at least three evolutions throughout its creation. Video editing has the final say on how your story turns out.

Editing is not just about tools but also the story. To be a more intentional editor, you need to start thinking critically about your shots, their order, when you choose to cut.


Sign up and have access to 13 hours of video tutorials from the very basics of video editing to working to a client brief; and everything in between.
