Dear Editor,

I am compiling a list of tips from professional editors for reference in a bit of research I'm doing on the subject of gaining experience and expanding one's resume in the editing field.

I would like to ask a few questions, if you would be so kind as to address them here.

-How do you approach applying for a job as a film editor?

-In your experience, what is the strongest selling point an editor can use in their resume?

-A Demo reel is used by cinematographers to showcase their talents. How does an editor effectively showcase their talent in a nutshell, as opposed to referring to an entire film?

-What are some of your personal "rules of editing" that you may have learned the hard way?

-What types of practice/drills do you recommend for a newcomer to editing who is looking to improve their storytelling ability (as it pertains to editing)?

-What are your criteria for a production that you would like to be a part of? or, what are some things you look for that may dissuade you from signing on for a project?

-What are some techniques that you admire in other editor's work?

-An editor has to work with what he is given. what must make your checklist of footage taken in order for you to do your job effectively ( how much coverage, what/how many angles, etc.)

thank you in advance for your insightful answers!
