Every once in a while your friends do something interesting that you just have to tell everyone about.

We get asked a lot of questions about editing and the post-production process in general. So much so, we put together a short guide that explains the process in detail. But I still want to talk a little more about what editing is, how things magically go from being footage to being a final cut.
Telling stories has always been a fundamental part of the human experience, whether they are passed down from generation to generation through the spoken word, music, literature, art, or cave paintings, these stories tie us together as humans, reminding us of our accomplishments, our mistakes, and our experiences.
