These editors made some very instructive insights on editing. Which I do agree with them, since, as Film Makers we are essentially story tellers and there needs to be a harmony between the story and editing, without it, the story will not flow.
I think it was Robert Rodriguez that said the best: "If you're just creative, you'll always have to rely on technical people. If you're creative and technical, you're unstoppable."
On another note, was reading some of the comments in this post, and one that came up to my attention was the one that Ty Gotham mentioned,
" Editing is a talent. Either you have it or you don't. If you have that talent, you can train it, but you can't teach it to someone who doesn't have it."
I guess he just wanted a bit of commotion, but Its all good, i like the diversity, I mean after all, we all have our opinions. Though his statement is true to an extent.
See, if we have that set given talent, it can be develop further and polished and yes some people are naturals at set talent. But its like all things in life, if there is a passion and the desire is to learn to be better, then that goal will be achieved.
So, yes, it can be thought.
Now, its even simpler to learn, since you have these great websites (like the one we are on now). I mean, come on, the information is handed to you on daily posts, all that we need to do is just do our homework; read, communicate, watch and learn from excellent film editors, and then develop your own style of art.
