DescriptionThe Assistant Editors position will aid the lead editor, director and producers in
collecting and organizing all the elements needed to edit the show. When editing
is finished, they oversee the various lists and instructions necessary to put the
show into its final form.
The organizational aspects of a film or television Assistant Editing job could best
be compared to database management. When a film or television show is shot,
every piece of picture or sound is coded with numbers and time codes. It is the
Assistant's job to keep track of these numbers in a database, which, in
non-linear editing, is linked to the computer program. The editor and director cut
the film using digital copies of the original film or video and sound, commonly
referred to as an "offline" edit. When the cut is finished, it is the Assistant's job
to bring the film or television show "online." They create lists and instructions
that tell the picture and sound finishers how to put the edit back together with
the high quality original elements.
The Assistant Editor position is looked as a training ground to prove yourself as
being ready to become a lead editor.
