The Importance of Being Editor

In many ways, an editor’s job is to validate everyone else’s job on the project. Any moment can be enhanced or undercut by the editor and in today’s creative market there are numerous editors on a project. One editor may shape the film or commercial’s principal photography to make a cohesive product, while other engineers edit the color grade, the sound, and the effects. At Ignite Studios, we value every aspect of editing and have invested in all the talent and equipment we can to help you oversee the development of your project. 

If you have any questions about specific equipment we’re running in the booths, feel free to stop by or give us a call and we can discuss what it is you need exactly. We have spent years getting the very best equipment in video and audio production and won’t leave anything we capture to chance. In the spirit of Kubrick, who said that “everything that precedes editing is merely a way of producing film to edit,” we will work with you to ensure that this last, important factor of your project is done justice.

“Editing is where movies are made or broken. Many a film has been saved and many a film has been ruined in the editing room.” ﹘Joe Dante

Every creative person has experienced the electricity of pure inspiration. You’re on set or in the studio and all of a sudden, it hits you﹘for that shining moment you’ve unlocked a new aspect of your project, you “see the Matrix,” and now you know what needs to be done. You trust your cameraperson, your gaffers, and your engineers to be able to pivot as needed and follow your lead while you experience a moment of unfettered creation. 

Now we pray it comes out in the editing bay.
