Thread: editing porn - breed and butter? info please

    Smile editing porn - breed and butter? info please

    Hi everyone – its been ages since I've been on here, I always visit these forums flat out for a few weeks- then kind of forget about it.. This time I'm going to try and stay around!!

    I just quit my job which involved video-based online health and safety training – I've been there for 3 years since leaving uni, I've also done a fair few pieces on a freelance basis and also a lot of personal 'fun' projects.

    I quit my job because for the short-medium term - I've got enough freelance work to keep me going, but I've been thinking about the 'bread and butter' money a freelance editor gets – And I know for a fact its very naοve to think wedding vids are 'easy bread and butter' cos there's a hell of a lot of stress with them (not that I've been silly enough to try!!!).

    So what I'm saying is that there is a mad amount of porn on the web, and 99% of it is edited in some way. I'm not looking to edit time-consuming 'film-like' porn, but there must be hundreds of people filming adult films for the web, who wants their end result to look better than a few simple cuts in movie maker.

    I suppose you've got to be a particular type of person to edit porn...I think most men on hear would think it would be brilliant - but it wont be brilliant when you dont get paid because the deadline was missed because of furious wanking!

    I really think I could do it simply for bread and butter and If the work isnt coming in from other areas, I just think porn is a good thing to full back on – because its NEVER going to run out!!!


    Has anyone done this or thought of doing this before – and if so how did you go about doing it!!

    You gotta be kidding! I would imagine that like any video it's either being shot by people who know what they're doing and have their own team or they are the home movie amateur types who want to show off their assets for kicks and certainly aren't going to want to pay someone to edit it.

    You either need to work for a production company directly or as a freelancer.

    I don't see there's anything "dfferent" about porn as far as a video editing job goes.

    (On the other hand, if you get more work than you can handle, give me a calll )

    god!- I was expecting loads of replies on this topic – Surely someone's done it? Haha

    I guess these forums are just filled with fine, upstanding, 'creative' video editors rather than broke people without a girlfriend!!

    No, this forum is filled with fine, upstanding, 'creative' video editors who are broke because they have girlfriends, or wives (or both). LOL

    After being contacted by a couple wanting their home 'movie' edited, I set up a site for those amateurs at home that wanted thier stuff edited too - in one year I had a total of .... ONE customer.

    I edit my own. Unlike in my other movies most of this editing involves making everything longer.

    As far as I know, on this forum, we have at least one "full time" adult videomaker and at least two who have filmed adult erotica professionally.

    This is an area which, as Tim points out, is either a professional production sometimes from a production company with its own crew, sometimes from a small one/two man band who film and edit or else a totally amateur set-up. Just like the wedding video arena. As a result, you won't find someone filming an adult shoot and then thinking "hmmm, who shall I get to edit it?"

    It's an area where you need experience. I've watched hundreds of feature films and worked on a fair few but I wouldn't offer myself up to edit one. In the same way, although having lit and shot a few adult productions, I would still hesitate before editing someone else's material.

    If you were thinking of entering the adult videomaking field I would say "give it a go" but if you're just going to restrict yourself to editting footage I would doubt that it would bring any results. Think about it, if you had adult material to edit would you go to an experienced wedding editor or an experienced erotica editor?

    They must have been very trusting. And I'm sure you were very professional, Andy.
