This week I sat down with our tutor in our development session and discussed how I could pitch my skills as an editor. We spoke about pitching for Dan’s Documentary as its unique on its own. It will be very challenging as I will be relying on the public and not by the crew itself at university. I was told to talk about the difficulties of editing such a project, what the challenges are, what techniques I will be using, what style I will be using, what formatting/quality issues could I be faced with and how I will edit it as an individual to make it my own.
Dan and I also were told to go over the editing roles for the project and allocate them between us because dan is too an editor but wanting to direct instead.
Dan will edit the promotional footage, the recces and post-sound.
I will be editing the Trailer, The main product both online and offline editing as well as the footage shot by the crew members (the three contributors just in case we have no success with the publics footage).
For the dissertation I spoke with my tutor an developed my idea:
Title: How editors Make or Break a Programme
To which extent can an editor control the editing process of a product
What is the differences between the editing styles for dramas and documentaries
Drama Vs Documentary
Walter Murch - Rule of Six
Challenges that occur through post-production
What programmes use a similar style to your work
What is it that allows editors to do this
Does this as an individual make me more employable/marketable
What is the role of an editor
Interview relevent editors and dirrectors
Use accademic sources for theories
what is the importance of the editor in relation to the production process
