@the30, technology alone will never replace the keen eyes, instincts, storytelling and artistry that comes from working with a great editor. Each cut an editor makes should add to the story or clarify a point. That is the work of a craftsman. And you don’t attain that kind of editing artistry by simply having the tools like AVID, Premiere and Final Cut Pro. You achieve it by working 40 hours a week AND nights AND weekends at the one part of the filmmaking process you truly love; the art of editing.
