Discover the Best Live Online Video Editing Classes

Video editors take different elements, such as video clips, audio, and special effects, and combine them into an original video that tells a story or communicates a specific message. They typically rely on video editing software like Adobe Premiere Pro or Apple Final Cut Pro. In addition to knowing how to use editing software, most Video Editors have an understanding of design and storytelling principles.

Video content has become increasingly popular in recent years, and video editing has become an in-demand skill. Video Editors can find work in a wide range of different industries including film and television, education, marketing, and social media. In addition, this profession is projected to grow at a faster-than-average rate in the future. For all of these reasons, an increasing number of people are choosing to invest in video editing training.

Best Video Editing Classes & Schools

Students who want to learn video editing will find many different options online. Options range from shorter classes that only take a day or two, to longer, more comprehensive courses like bootcamps or certificate programs. Since the online format allows students to attend classes that are not in the same town or city as they are, this format allows the greatest number of class options. 

The Borough of Manhattan Community College is based in Manhattan, but also offers online classes. It has an online video editing course called Comprehensive Video Editing, which is comprised of 25 sessions, and takes place live via Zoom. Students learn single-camera edits, audio, multi-camera edits, color correction, and graphics. Tuition for this class is $914.

Another online option is Introduction to Premiere Pro CC, which is offered through Future Media Concepts. This class has three sessions, and costs $1,195. Students receive instruction in Adobe Premiere Pro through a combination of lectures and hands-on practice. The course covers multicamera editing, color correction and grading, editing and mixing audio, creating titles, and adding transitions.

The Manhattan Edit Workshop offers a class for students who want to learn Avid Media Composer. Media Composer Fundamentals I and II is an online class with five sessions and it costs $1,995. The course covers a long list of skills including drag-and-drop editing, refining a sequence, transition effects and segment effects, creating titles, and exporting. No prior experience with Media Composer is necessary.

Industries That Use Video Editing

Video Editors work on many different types of content including movies, television shows, video games, advertisements, social media posts, educational tutorials, and website content, and can thus be found in a range of different industries. The film and television industry employs the largest number of Video Editors; 39 percent according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Many of these people work in Los Angeles, which is home to some of the largest and most influential movie and television companies in the world.

Video Editors also work on a lot of content for websites and social media. Over the past few years, video has become more and more widespread on these platforms, with research revealing that sites that use video content are more successful at attracting and keeping users. Sites that are comprised almost entirely of video content–like Youtube and TIkTok–have millions of users.

Video is also a popular tool in marketing, where it helps engage and inform viewers, selling a range of different products and services in the process. According to a recent report by Wyzowl, 87 percent of marketers say that video marketing has helped them increase sales, and 95 percent say it has increased brand awareness.

Video is also used by a growing number of educators. Research shows that many students pay attention better and learn better when a lesson includes video. A recent study also shows that they may also get better grades.

Some Video Editors work alone, particularly those that work on smaller projects. In other cases–particularly for large jobs like full-length films–a number of different editors work together, each specializing in a different part of the process. For instance, one editor might focus on special effects, another on color, and another on sound.

Video Editing Jobs & Salaries

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) is a federal agency that collects and reports on a range of different employment statistics. According to BLS data, California is one of the best U.S. states to look for a Video Editing job; it employs more than 10,000 of the country’s Film and Video Editors, which is double that of the other top four states combined. Most of these people work in the Los Angeles metropolitan area. The New York metropolitan area also employs a large number of Film and Video Editors. Other top-ranking metropolitan areas for employment include: Chicago, San Francisco, Atlanta, and Miami.

Los Angeles and New York are also among the top-paying metropolitan areas. BLS finds that Film and Video Editors earn an average of $60,000 per year, however, salaries are much higher in some areas. The average salary in New York is almost $110,000 per year, and in Los Angeles it is just over $80,000. California and New York also rank in the top three states for highest salary in addition to New Hampshire, the District of Columbia, and Connecticut.


According to BLS, there is a good future job outlook for this field. It predicts that between 2021 and 2031, Film and Video Editing jobs will increase by 12 percent in the United States. This is much faster than the average rate of only 5 percent. The agency finds two main reasons for this projected increase. It says, “The number of online-only platforms, such as streaming services, is likely to increase, along with the number of shows produced for these platforms. This growth may lead to more work for film and video editors and camera operators.” In addition, it finds, “More film and video editors are expected to be needed because of an increase in special effects and overall available content.”
