lynda.com Helps TV Editor Find Time to Be Stay-at-Home Mom

Stay-at-home mom Clare Childs

Clare Childs was a successful video editor on high-profile TV shows: “Wife Swap,” “The X Factor,” and “The Secret Millionaire.”

“I was at the top of my game,” she says. “And then I had children—which is a real game-changer.”

No longer willing to work 50+ hours a week in an editing bay, she needed a family-friendly way to keep her mind active and generate  income. She found it with lynda.com.

“I learned how to build websites,” she says. “Completely.”

Now she’s a stay-at-home mom who spends evenings building WordPress sites for clients, and days cavorting with her kids.

“I am one happy lady,” she says.

get smart strategies for searching your video clips

In video editing, it’s important to have smart strategies for labeling and searching your video clips —especially since we often work with projects that contain hundreds of clips.

It’s also important to do as much work as possible on the front end to help minimize time and effort on the back end; that way, you’re not constantly hunting and pecking through your bins for the perfect shot during the creative process.
