This is my latest wedding highlight reel. The videographers were Geoff Livingston and Rob Leslie. All of us are contractors working for Urban Wedding. Music is Ageless Beauty by The Stars.
I did the editing; the invisible job. It can also be one of the most frustrating jobs, and requires a good deal of concentration, patience, problem solving, and coffee. This is especially true with wedding footage since there are no re-shoots.
I have noticed that Microsoft has ads up on the television showing a family instantly making a video of the dad acting like an idiot, complete with motion effects and cut to music. It gives the impression that an editor just presses a magic button and instantly everything is available over the internet.
I would like to point out that this is virtually impossible - and if it is realistic, I need to find a new job.
Be kind to editors. They have a great deal of power and can be very moody while working.
