What Exactly Does An Assistant Editor Do? This Hilarious Song Will Tell You

Let's be honest, there are a few positions in film production that are a complete mystery to the public. In that range of misunderstood jobs, somewhere between the 2nd Assistant Director and Best Boy Electric, lives the Assistant Editor. Luckily for us, a musician named Mark Adams crafted a jaunty pop tune that explains, in no uncertain terms, what an Assistant Editor does, and just how important the job really is.

Just as a heads up, this song contains some harsh language, so if you're at work, maybe don't blast this at full volume. Or do.

Needless to say, I think that the assistant editing community has found its anthem. What do you guys think of the Assistant Editor Song? Are there other hilarious film-themed songs out there? Share them down in the comments!

Now he needs to do AC, DIT, VFX Supervisor, whole crew. I demand it. I need this to properly explain studio structure to friends.

Made in an era when people had longer attention spans. Someone put a lot of work into this.
