Question by MxRacer207: What is the easiest way to get into film editing?
i love film editing and i am into making action sports clips and things like that. i also made my own lord of the rings style film for my high school media studies course, I won three awards for it. i have looked into a film school in new zealand (home) and its really expensive.. im young and i dont want to jump into a big student loan and moving overseas… the first step i made this year was getting a job in a motorcycle shop so i can continue racing motocross but also have enough money to buy my own camera and make short films etc. I basically want to know if I should go to the film school or do it myself, im scared there will be no work for me when I come out of the school.
Any help at all would be much appreciated!! Thanks alot
check my videos out i made them last year when i was 15

My sister got into film editing. She went to college in New York and has been very successful and has worked on many large and visible projects, including some well known movies now. It can be lucrative if you are good and have the connections. you probably don’t need to go overseas to get the connections and training. Just go to a college that has a well known film editing department and start from there.
