The challenges of editing are many and have to
be tackled with great care. Some people’s interviews are easy to
edit on their own, but tricky to fit into a broader story. Other interviews are downright frustrating, but essential to the film. Some interviews present ethical challenges. Some (hopefully most) slide
seamlessly into your film.
In this lesson we take a closer look at how much
you leave in and take out, what decisions you may be faced with, and how to
make those decisions.
