In this post, we take a look back at the post production landscape of 2013 and ahead to the future of video editing and post in 2014.
At the beginning of this year I wrote a post called 5 Ways To Become A Better Film Editor, in which I sketched out the ways in which I was looking to improve as a freelance film editor, and hopefully shared a few useful thoughts on how you might do the same. I thought it would be a fun idea to look back over 2013, as well as ahead to next year, with a few more thoughts on the year in review.
5 WAYS TO BECOME A BETTER FILM EDITOR
To sum up 5 Ways To Become A Better Film Editor I essentially said the ways I wanted to improve were:
- To get faster
- Become more collaborative
- See more inspiring work
- Make time to learn
- Get more exercise to fuel my creativity

I started the year with only Final Cut Studio 3 on my machine and have ended the year with Adobe Creative Cloud and Avid Media Composer 6.5 (yet to buy that upgrade!) fully installed. Iâ€™ll almost certainly added FCPX to that mixer in 2014, once the December update finally appears. And who knows, I might end 2014 with Lightworks for Mac installed too. read more...
