FILM EDITOR FOR COMEDY FEATURE (LOS ANGELES)

compensation: Negotiable, project fee

Editor needed to shape a 90-minute rough cut into a polished film. Genre is comedy.

Looking for an editor who can find ways to improve the rough cut. Implement the notes I have from my feedback sessions, move things around, add transitions, split screens, reframe shots (it was shot in 4k) make sure all the files are set up for sound editing, VFX, etc. Someone who uses Walter Murch’s approach to editing and knows when to hold on a moment/beat so the audience can emotionally connect to the character. I hope to find a long-term collaborator to work with on future films, my very own Thelma Schoonmaker if you will. 

The footage is organized on Adobe premiere. Must be experienced using Premiere.  Looking for someone creative, passionate about making a good film and a good communicator. If you can discuss the psychological effect of shot, then we’re on the same page. Position is paid. Starts Thursday 9/19.

Email resume and samples, include links to complete projects or 5 minutes of continuous footage. Tell me a little about your background and approach to editing a scene.
