Further Confessions: I Hate Video Editing
Originally published as blog-vember #14
I hate video editing. There. I’ve said it.
Unlike my self-selected mentors—Roberto Blake and Shameless Maya—there is nothing that strikes fear in me more than tackling video editing. So, why do I do it?
I do it, because I know that I can make something truly fucking amazing if I just hunker down and get it done. I am not bragging, but I have a graphic designer’s eye along with a grunge and style-conscious aesthetic. I know this. So, when it comes to farming these mundane duties out to somebody—who I don’t know well enough to trust—well, that’s where the trouble starts...
Don’t get me wrong, I know that there are people out there who live for this stuff, but I haven’t seen anyone who is available and who has that eye; that can bring about that sense of pink, grungy wonder to match our eclectic work. And by the time I actually find someone who embodies that shit totally, I will be too old and gray to be rocking out with social media. So, I have to strike now, while the flame—and the looks—are still hot.
