We try to stay away from sharing video-specific content on PetaPixel because we consider ourselves photo people through and through. And yet, overlap is bound to happen, which is why we couldn’t resist sharing this insightful and artfully crafted animation that pays homage to the work of editors.
The video was put together by the folks over at Inside the Edit, and is aimed at “every editor out there in those dark rooms creating art with moving images,” but the animation could easily be applied to any editor in any field.
The cutting down, organizing, reordering and shaping of something — be it a photo series, a time-lapse production or a short documentary — into a better version of itself, all the while attempting to remain invisible in the process, is something that any editor can relate to.
So enjoy this little homage to the editor in your life (even if/especially if that’s you) and let us know who your important editor has been and why by dropping some kudos for them in the comments.
