Job Description - Sr. Video Editor
Senior video editors are responsible for leading a team of video editors throughout the editing process, maintaining overall awareness of the team’s actions, and ensuring that the finished product meets the expectations.
Senior video editors must collaborate during every phase of editing, scripting, music, animation, etc. to ensure that the final product does not deviate from what is expected. This requires strong communications skills, as abstract ideas must be presented and understood for everyone to be on the same page. Senior video editors are also responsible for maintaining all backups and archived data in case of an emergency or loss. In addition to overseeing employees, these editors must also be proficient in the editing tasks that the team is expected to fulfill and may need to fill in or work independently on certain segments to maintain pace. As such, they may also be in charge of creating and maintaining a schedule for the editing process and informing both the team and management of when projects should be completed.
Aspiring senior video editors should have a bachelor’s degree in a relevant field and at least ten years of editing experience. They typically work during regular weekly business hours, and additional time may occasionally be necessary to meet deadlines. Travel is not necessary for this position.
