Film and Television Editors
Broadcast journalism and other media and communications courses
may provide you with practical experience in video editing. Because
film and television editing requires creativity along with
technical skills, you should take English, speech, theater, and
other courses that will allow you to develop writing skills. Art
and photography classes will involve you with visual media. If
you're lucky enough to attend a high school that offers classes in
either film history or film production, be sure to take those
courses. The American Film Institute's Web site
(http://www.afi.edu) offers resources for teachers and students.
Finally, don't forget to take computer classes. Editing work
constantly makes use of new technology, and you should become
familiar and comfortable with computers as soon as possible.
