An Editor should possess advanced skills including, but not limited to the latest versions of; Adobe Premier, After Effects and Audition with a strong sense of design, often requiring a solid working knowledge in Illustrator and Photoshop for custom asset creation. Post-production routinely takes more time than and is not limited by the constraints of specific production scheduling often resulting in more regular hours, depending on the project and workload. Each project’s time will be estimated in advance to insure better management, meeting deadlines - preventing cost overruns. Editors are responsible for knowing the schedule, coming in when available, tracking personal hours, updating the status of projects online, backing up files and organization of data.

The flex may be asked to step into the editor’s role as needed, depending on the demand and complexity of a project.
