In my opinion, the best position to have on a documentary project is the role of editor. …It's where discoveries are made and the story magic happens. …So make sure you always stay open to possibilities you weren't expecting and learn as much as …you can about the process and the tool you're using to edit. …A few places you might go for resource. …One is to my website, Revuptransmedia, where I have a blog called TELLING STORIES. …And in that blog I talk about different ways to put stories together, you might find that interesting.…
You can also go to lynda.com courses on Final Cut Pro. …There's another course I've created called Effective Storytelling with Final Cut Pro …X, and especially if you're just learning how to put a story together, this course could …be very helpful in guiding you along that path. …Thanks for joining me. I'll see you in the next course. ……
This course is part of a series that looks at documentary editing from the point of view of 3 different editors in 3 different editing applications.
