Is it better to go freelance or full-time as a video editor? We talk about the pros and cons of each. Plus a HUGE announcement!

 

If you’re reading this then there’s a good chance you’re either a full-time video editor looking to take the leap to freelance, or you’re looking to start a career in video editing but you can’t decide whether to start as a freelancer or take a full-time job.

 

In this episode of The Video Editing Podcast, I share my journey from 2006 to compare the two options and give my opinion as to which is better.

 

If you’re quick you may be able to join the 5-Day Commercial Editing Challenge.

 

For only £10 you get:

– Access to raw footage to practice editing (that you get to keep)

– Daily training for 5 days that guides you through the steps of editing a commercial

– Daily Q&A with a professional commercial editor

– Prizes to help you improve your editing and rocket boost your career

 

The challenge starts on July 27th 2022 and on each of the 5 days of the challenge you’ll learn the steps to take to cut a commercial. At the end of the challenge you submit your edit for a chance to win over £300 worth of prizes including free membership to Unsplice Pro!

This live podcast was a bit of an experiment. I wanted to try to see if it worked. I think it went well. What did you think? I’m considering broadcasting the live podcast first on YouTube and then publishing the day after on the podcast networks. If you want to be the first to listen to the podcast then be sure to subscribe to Unsplice’s YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/unsplice

 

Do you have a question you’d like answered on the podcast? Head to https://www.unsplice.com/ask to submit your question. It can be related to the art of editing or about career progression.

Thank you for listening!
