“The codebook section alone was worth the price for the tutorial for me. That’s the kind of stuff I just couldn’t learn on my own. Self-confidence level skyrocketing with every chapter!”

“This course has been so informative. You have done an excellent job distilling the information down in a clear and concise way. Between this and shadowing my friend recently I feel ready for my first real substantial scripted show.”
Aleigh L. Founding Member
“Just finished up Module 5 (Editorial). Along with all the wonderful technical education from all the lessons, the editing room diplomacy lesson in this module was really good and vital. Working habits and attitudes generally determine what keeps an assistant editor in the job or not and it’s super important to have the correct attitude and habits as specified in this lesson. Thanks so much for a fantastic job guys!”

Q: What does an assistant editor do?
A: Assistant editors are the people that deal with every aspect of a production through the major stages: production, editing and finishing.

They are the unsung heroes of the cutting room and at Master the Workflow, we train you to be a feature film assistant editor at the highest level.

A: Of course you can learn on the job. The journey of an assistant editor is one of constantly learning and improving your own workflow. But the demands of the job spin at a ferocious pace. Speed, accuracy and efficiency are the key words.
That said, it can be very hard to land your first job, especially if you are unfamiliar with the concepts and intricacies of the cutting room.
