Shoot Like An Editor

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


After shooting and editing for a while, I’ve come to really respect both skills. I think more shooters should learn each and learn how to think like an edito…

Thank you for the info. One thing though, my OCD makes me constantly not
able to take my eyes off of your shirt collar haha. The whole video I was
imagining myself fixing it for you.

J2theNard says:

I’m primarily an editor and when I go out and shoot I realize I capture
with an editor’s mindset, which at times is an advantage because I’m used
to how the content will come out.

Lee Cant says:

Brilliant advice :)

harryllama says:

Thanks, a very helpful video. I found your discussion of transition shots
and b-roll the most useful!
Do you have any reviews of editing software? I’m about at the end of FCP7,
and wondering whether to go the Adobe route or try Sony Vegas and DaVinci
Resolve. Thoughts?

raredreamfootage says:

A transition could also utilize similar elements from one scene into
another. For instance we can end a scene by cutting away to an overhead
ceiling fan twirling away. We then can open the next scene by showing
something with a similar twirling motion.

Great episode! :D Really helpful! Do you think you can do an episode on
“how to hired”? Some tips would be great! Thanks!

phillipkelly7 says:

great video, thanks

sjs says:

Great tips Caleb. As far as the “B” roll, if you are shooting a video, try
to find someone else’s video which you enjoyed [of approximately the same
length], and count how many different shots and angles were used and
multiply that by at least 2.5 for edits that didn’t make the cut.

Andy Rosebrook says:
