    I thought Mark was extremely knowledgeable about the topic he was teaching. While we went through many different aspects of Adobe Premiere, I didn't feel overwhelmed by the information and took away a lot of useful tips that I will utilize in my professional career. I would recommend this course to anybody who wants to sharpen their video editing skills.

    Kalika's class was very informative and took a easy approach to learning to what seems like an intimidating interface which reduced my fear of learning this new software. With some practice I feel like a pro and I loved her humor.

    Mark is a phenomenal teacher. Excellent movie samples, I felt so good about all the progress I’ve made on this program. I also really enjoyed the types of work we did and all the repetition of shortcut keys. It made me so hopeful about learning this application at a deeper level.

    The course was excellent. The instructor, Mark Chandler, explained things very well and had lots of patience. He checked on each and every one of us and made sure we understood the lessons. The course covered everything from video editing to audio editing to color correction to outputs. Highly recommended.

    I really felt like I got my money's worth. I learned everything I was hoping to, to give me confidence to edit at home. We covered the "basics", but I'm already able to edit videos for practical use, so think this is an excellent course! Really nice teacher.

    Teacher was great - very helpful and would walk us through what to do and then let us try on our own. If we had any troubles, he'd help explain what we did wrong or how to fix it. We covered a lot of material in 3 days and I'm excited to use Premiere Pro on my own!

Video Editors manipulate and rearrange video clips, audio, and effects in order to create video content that tells a story or conveys some other message to the audience. While most people associate video editing with the film and television industry, Video Editors also work in a wide range of other industries. For example, they create educational content for schools, design social media content, and craft marketing material. 

Video content is a popular tool for businesses of many types, making video editing skills a valuable asset. Researchers have found that video is a very effective way to get people’s attention, and to help them understand and remember information. For instance, according to a recent LinkedIn post, when video is used on social media, it gets 1200 percent more shares than text and image content combined, and when viewers receive information in a video, they retain 95 percent of it, compared to only 10 percent if they read it in text.

NYC Industries That Use Video Editing

Video Editors work in many different industries. One of the largest is the film and television industry, and a significant percentage of the country’s film and television companies are based in New York City, which has a large arts and entertainment community. According to one recent study, New York City’s film and television industry supports hundreds of thousands of jobs and billions of dollars in wages every year. Video Editors who are employed in this industry can work on a wide range of different types of projects including movies, short films, documentaries, and television shows.

Video Editors also do many other jobs such as editing content for websites, creating social media content, generating educational material, and working on marketing campaigns, and are needed in many different industries.

Video Editing Jobs & Salaries in NYC

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) provides employment statistics and projections for Video Editors in the United States. It ranks the New York metropolitan area at number two–after Los Angeles–for the highest employment level of Film and Video Editors. Overall, it estimates that about four-and-a-half thousand people are employed in this profession in the New York City area. This is almost half as many as Los Angeles, however, it is far more than the number three ranking, which is the Chicago area, with just under 300 people employed.

BLS also provides salary estimates for Film and Video Editors. In New York City, they earn close to $110,000 per year. This is far higher than the national average of $60,000.

It explains that this increase is predicted in part because there is expected to be an increase in online media platforms such as streaming services, which will lead to demand for more video content.
