From a certain point of view, the film editor may be the most misunderstood of all film professionals. Often thought of as just a technician, a good film editor is actually more of an artist. It is the job of the editor to sort through many hours of footage provided by the director, and somehow piece together the shots that will best tell the story the director is trying to tell. A good film editor doesn't just find the best shots: he/she knows how to create artistic sequences that keep the audience guessing and wanting more. Needless to say, film editing can make or break a film, which is why good film editors are highly respected in the industry, and even more in high demand. [+]
