Oliver Peters breaks down a good set-up to consider for editors working on-the-go.
He writes, “Not all editing is done in comfy edit suites with powerful workstations. Many film editors cut on location for part of the film. Plenty of other editors make their living on the corporate circuit cutting convention and conference highlights, ‘happy faces’ videos, and recaps for social media. If you are one of the latter group, much of your work is done in hotel rooms, ad hoc media centers set up in conference rooms, and/or backstage in the bowels of some convention center. Your gigs bounce between major cities and resorts around the country and sometimes the world. Learning to travel light, but without compromise is important.”
