How to Learn to Edit on Instinct

    When I find myself teaching editing to film school students, I find myself at a loss. A large part of editing, like any art form, involves something which is impossible to teach; the instinct of the artist to create something powerful and authentic.

    This is something which must be experienced rather than learned, and Every Frame a Painting summarises it perfectly in their video essay below. Check it out, and I hope it serves as inspiration to you in all your editing endeavours.
