Chapter Ten. In The Cutting Room > The Editing Process

The Editing Process

In the film world, once shooting is complete it's customary for the director to confer with the editor, then return weeks or perhaps months later to view a rough cut—the editor's first draft of the picture. However, in video production, many directors prefer to supervise the editor directly as she works.
