Hiring a video editor - FAQs

What can I expect to pay a video editor?

Rates vary for freelance video editors. Someone who has a couple of years experience and is still developing their style may charge around $50-70 an hour. For an experienced video editor or producer who has worked with a variety of clients, has professional equipment, produces FX and motion graphics you can expect to pay $100-150 an hour. Always ask prospective freelances for a link to their showreel as this will give you a snapshot of their work to date.

When looking for a video editor, is there software they should be proficient with?

A professional editor will have a chosen editing software. This may include Adobe Premiere Pro, Avid and Final Cut Pro. You might also find a freelancer who uses other editing software, and depending on the effects and the detail of your needs, we’d recommend asking your shortlist for a showreel to demonstrate their experience and flair.

What’s the difference between a video producer and video editor?

Sometimes there is crossover with roles or what freelancers may call themselves. We like to think of it this way:

A video producer will have expertise in the whole production process including storyboarding and bringing together a crew for filming if need be. They may hire an editor for post-production, or complete the project themselves.

A video editor, whilst having knowledge of the production phase, will specialise in post-production and will edit already captured or available content (photos, footage, graphics).

We have the assets including access to images and videos. Is it possible for a video editor to create a corporate / educational video with what we have on hand?

Absolutely! A professional video editor will be able to piece together your library of existing assets to produce video content for your website and socials. Just keep in mind, you may need additional assets such as a voice-over, additional graphics, stock photos or videos and royalty-free music; all of which a professional video editor can find for you.
