Film Editor Resume

A Film Editor Resume is used by editors to apply for jobs with production houses. They specialize in film and video editing. Predominantly, editors used to work on reels while editing the film (cutting, joining and arranging scenes in a desired sequence), using a method known as linear film editing. However, with the advent of technology and availability of digital HD cameras like Red One and Sony F23/ F35/ F65 CineAlta, film making has become less expensive and the process of editing has changed to non-linear editing. These digital HD cameras record full HD images (1080 p resolution) and then the editor takes the data on the hard disk, which is then connected to the editing console ( Mac machine, Avid, etc.). Now the editor can endlessly go forward and backward on the timeline, without the tension of the reel getting damaged, and selecting the scenes for editing. This process involves performing tele-sync on the raw footage, which means, converting the reel format to digital format by taking the reel's backup on your editing machine. Once the editor completes the editing, he uses the reverse tele-sync method to print the finished movie onto the film reel.

This job is a highly technical one but also, at the same time, one of the rarest jobs, which demands equal level of creativity on the part of the editor who can regularly push the boundaries of cinema by the way of break-through editing techniques.

Following is a Film Editor Resume sample.

A film editor resume has a very large scope for filling in information but you should, rather stick to the relevant details according to the kind of project you are applying for. Understandably, this kind of profile would contain a lot of technical terms sprinkled all over the resume, but it's your responsibility to write it all in the most simplest language such that you tell the recruiter about your important work and at the same time, are also able to maintain the sense of its technical importance.
