Today i learned about the multiple different platforms you can have/use in order to get more recognition on what you do helping you get more money having a platform like YouTube compared to TikTok may help better in the long run for newcomers who are just starting out because YouTube allows longer videos that gives you more time to showcase your skill allowing you to gain more publicity for your work.

Today I watched videos of editing and a few of the seven laws to film editing 1. Watch every frame of raw footage. At least twice. Then start. The best reaction of an actor might come after the director has called “cut” because they relax and stop performing. Vashi suggests watching your footage twice: once from start to finish then again to take notes. As the editor no other person on the team will make more decisions about the detailed shaping of the story. 2. Nurture your relationship with the director, The editor is the only other person who gets to see all the weaknesses and flaws of the film. So, that relationship with the director is very special. You cannot have an ego or are short-tempered, no talent will keep you from getting fired. Be open minded and communicate with your director.
