Music Video Editors
Music video editors perform an essential role in the music industry. They take an unedited draft of film or digital video and use specialized equipment to improve the draft until it is ready for viewing. It is the responsibility of the video editor to create the most effective product possible that reflects the intentions of the featured music artist—or more precisely, the artist's record label. There are approximately 21,920 film and video editors employed in the United States.
