    I am a film editor and would like to collaborate on a project, in exchange to help build my portfolio.

    My specialty is narrative editing [shorts, feature-length, (docs: short/long-form) scripted i.e., Netflix type series].

    No commercials, ads, music videos, corporate videos, etc. It must be shot in English with no, or very light VFX. I can handle any footage, even 8K.

    The project should not have an immediate deadline, I am available to start immediately.

    My setup is on the Adobe suite [Premiere, After Effects, etc.]

    Send me a PRIVATE MESSAGE if you are interested, I would love to learn more about your film.

    You can also reach out to me at https://thefilmcut.com/contacts-us/

    Hi Alan! I saw on your website some of your reels. You did the edit or you also did the filming?

    Well sure here you go:
      
    I am editing a short film called Trigger-ED.


    Logline: Terrence struggles daily with his mental health, and is terrorised by the voice in his head called Trigger.

    The script for this film has already won five awards. The film was shot in the UK and I am in the USA. I collaborate with the director via Frame.io

    There are 27 scenes and this scene(s) is on its 2nd revision; so rough cut and this version. The picture is almost locked. This revision cleaned up some cuts and added most of the sound design. 

    Trigger-ED
    Scene 12-15

    I will keep the link active for 36 hours

    This is great! Congratulations! The logline is very good, too! :)
    I missed the link, howevere, I guess it would be safer to share it in a private message rather than on the public forum.

    I will be completely honest with you. Your post got me wondering when I will see your work in my local cinema.

    Sorry about that, I did remove the link a little early. We are almost picture locked and I can share another link soon.

    Thanks for sharing this with us, Alan! I was looking forward to seeing this one since I first read your post. You are a very good editor. I hope I can edit movies this good in the future as well. I am only a student now :)

    His inner voice reminds me of my own. It is very relatable. I can literally see myself in his shoes, having the same conversations.

    Hey Harry, thank you for thinking of me! I really hope that I have a chance to edit my first feature film this year. I've been in contact with a few people that have productions but nothing has materialized as of yet.


    My last project of 2022, I worked with an amazing director from the UK named Matt Taylor. His short film is called Tealight - https://www.imdb.com/title/tt15096506/

    To date, Tealight has won eight awards. I'm really proud of this project because Matt is really passionate about his work, and the film really shows his creativity.

    If you want to watch it, you can see it here. - https://youtu.be/Zazu6m8qkJM

    I also wrote a blog post about us working together - https://thefilmcut.com/the-edit/the-edit-working-on-tealight-a-short-story-by-matt-taylor/

    Hope everyone is doing great!

    Eight Awards is a great line to add to your Resume. I knew from the initial post that you are doing a great job and I was hoping that you will get some recognition for it.
