While some editing projects are straight forward, some require specific graphics, logos and music tracks as well as lower-thirds. This information should be communicated to us prior to the production itself since editing may occur soon after the video has been recorded.
Collaborative Editing Process
When editing a complex video project (one that requires a significant amount of unique graphics, b-roll, transitions, voice overs, music tracks, etc.) it is imperative that there be a collaboration between editor and producer. This is generally facilitated by sending raw footage to the producer who then provides an edit decisions using Frame.io platform. This can also include additional information as to style. Once the edit is received a preview version is produced and e-mailed back to the producer. This process can take two, three, or even four passes before a final version is rendered and approved by various individuals who control content that resides on FDU’s YouTube Channel or website.
