Final Thoughts

Every new editor likes to think about creating the perfect video. I know the perfectly composed movie is an ongoing quest for me in Premiere. At the same time, it’s good to remember the words of Peter Jackson, the director of the Lord of the Rings trilogy. When asked about filming and editing the trilogy’s first movie, The Fellowship of the Ring, he said, “I could have kept on filming and I could have kept on editing, but I had to stop and remind myself that I needed to tell a good story.” Those are words for the DV editor to live by.

Just about every movie ever made could be better in some way, and, now, achieving perfection is that much more obtainable when editing with Adobe Premiere 6.5. Create shooting and editing challenges for yourself. And give yourself time. Rushed editing will be apparent in the quality of the final product. Sketch out ideas for your projects. Log your footage. Dive in. Don’t be afraid to push your limits. Sure, you’ll make mistakes along the way; that’s not a big deal. Correct them. Learn from them.
