As a video editor, your role is to keep yourself informed of what the company is aiming for a specific project. This means that you must be present in meetings so we can plan, collaborate, and execute the steps correctly.
You are responsible for taking the voice clip, processing it in Adobe Audition to remove background noise (if any), and mastering it for web use.
You also get all the necessary assets such as stock photos, stock videos, stock sound effects, and royalty-free music. If required (for other projects), you design graphic pieces/elements to be used in a video. You also coordinate with Jan Marc or Jennifer so you can get additional assets like photos and videos from events.
Once you have all the assets, you can start drafting a storyboard for the video. It is the process of laying out all the visual elements and arranging them into an ideal, possibly final look of the video. It can change from time to time depending on the situation.
You’re also responsible for preparing the stock elements. Stock videos will have to be encoded to shrink them down to manageable file sizes to make them easier to process in the editing software/computer. Editing them according to the requirements and submitting them for approval.
You make sure that the created video is up to the company’s branding standard in terms of vision, and branding elements such as fonts, colors, other graphic pieces, tone, and voice.
