video editing
June 12th, 2014

If you hate your job at the office and despise working with a boss who seems to think you just can’t do anything right, then there’s no stopping you from quitting. After all, you can always find another job. Better yet, you can work from home as a freelancer.
 
You can choose any kind of work as long as you have the necessary knowledge and experience to ensure you are able to perform the required tasks well. For example, you can work from home as a video editor.
 
Video editors are responsible for putting together recorded materials and coming up with a quality finished product. The raw material may include dialog, camera footage, sound effects and special effects. As a video editor, you may be working alone or with a team who are usually working with a director who gives advise and inputs to achieve an end product that’s suitable for broadcasting.
 
As a freelance video editor, you will usually be working on short-term contracts for TV companies, events videographers, post-production studios and corporate employers. You may work on a wide range of films including feature films, music videos, wedding videos, corporate training videos, product sales ads, TV commercials and TV programs.
 
Basic Requirements
 
If you’re interested in becoming a work from home video editor, you should first learn how to edit movies, ads and video materials. There are several ways to do this but perhaps the best option is for you to actually enroll in video editing courses which are widely available online. You can also take an internship with a reputable production company, which will boost your chances of finding clients later on.
 
Next you will need to have the right tools, equipment and space where you can do your work and not be bothered by anyone. The right tools include professional editing software such as the Sony Movie Studio Platinum Suite 12, Adobe Photoshop, GenArts Sapphire and Magic Bullet Suite just to name a few. As for equipment, you’ll need a powerful processor, a sharp LED display monitor, audio monitoring and some furniture too. After all, you are likely going to be working long hours at your desk. Comfort is of utmost importance.
 
Duties and Responsibilities of a Video Editor
 
Majority of the tasks of video editors include the following:
 
• Edit raw footage and evaluate assembled videotape.
• Trim video segments to enable the video to get maximum effect from the story presented.
• Evaluate and choose scenes to boost the story’s value.
• Use editing software and equipment to obtain a quality finished product.
• Add sound effects, graphics, banner graphics, music, water marks, etc to the video project.
• Add intros and out-tros as per client request.
 
Freelance Video Editor Salary
 
The salary of a freelance video editor vary by location and experience. In D.C., the highest incomes can go as much as $124,000 per year while in California, a video editor can earn up to $89,000 per year.
 
Video editors with a lot of experience and expertise can demand higher rates. They also know where to find the best paying clients. And since it always follows that the longer you work in this profession, the more clients you will have, you are likely to make more money as time passes by since you will be working on more projects each year compared to when you first started out.
