Attention Professional Video Editors!

  1. I need your help! I'll get right to the point, I need an email
    interview with a professional digital video editor.

    I am a 3rd year film student at Niagara College, in Ontario, writing a
    25-page essay that is mandatory for my graduation. The topic I have
    chosen for this essay is what kind of editing system a freelance editor
    just starting out should invest in. I will be asking you questions
    about your opinion on your choice of editing system or systems. Even
    more specific would be the computer hardware, operating system,
    non-linear editing software, and any input/output devices. If you are
    interested in giving me your opinion on your personal favorite editing
    setup, send me an email at and I will send you my

    In order for this email interview to be legitimate for my paper, I will
    need some credentials; Name, who you work for (company, or freelance is
    fine), phone number (incase my teacher decides to give you a call to
    make sure you are who you say you are).

    Thanks for your time!

  2. This question has been asked a gazillion times in this and other
    newsgroups. I suggest to use your favourite internet search-engine, and
    find the answers in the discusssion-groups. Instead of phone-numbers, you
    can use the message-reference.
    Also, some online vendors, like for instance Videoguys, have articles about
    this, with plenty of information.

  3. You're absolutly right Martin, and I am doing exactly that. The one
    thing that I failed to mention is that I need a minimum of 5 interviews
    as primary research in order to pass this assignment. The majority of
    my research for this paper has been secondary research done in
    libraries and online. Though I still need to nail down some interviews.
    I just need a few small quotes to add to my paper, so the interview
    doesn't even need to be that long. Now that I have that explained, you
    probably understand. Thanks for the advice anyway!

  4. Did you try calling around at your local post-production houses? Especially
    the low-budget ones might be helpful. But, my guess, they all use Final Cut
