One way to accomplish those goals is by doing away with what many call “amateur” mistakes. Below are some examples of these common errors.

Common Blunders Committed by Amateur Video Editors Many in the film industry look at amateur filmmakers as violators of film aesthetics. While this is not always the case, a budding filmmaker should strive and aim for artistic perfection. One way to accomplish those goals is by doing away with what many call “amateur” mistakes. Below are some examples of these common errors. Poor Score Budding filmmakers should keep in mind that the musical score is an element that differentiates the film from the others. When choosing music, filmmakers should take time to look for or compose music that will reinforce the message of the film. The songs or instrumentals should match the intensity and pace of each scene. Frames that are Too Long Some films tend to drag on because of two factors: the story is long on purpose or the editor doesn’t how to make cuts. The first reason is alright if it’s the director’s vision, while the second one is inexcusable unless that is the concept. Less is more in video editing. Every editor should live by the rule “When in doubt, cut it out.”

Using Clichéd Special Effects Budding editors may get too excited with the plethora of special effects available in their editing suite, but they shouldn’t let this excitement carry them away. Using clichéd special effects will only reduce the aesthetic value of the film project. Using Clichéd Typefaces Helvetica and Futura may be the standards in a filmmaker’s font arsenal, but this should not always be the case. They might be safe choices, but they can be clichéd, unless the film is straightforward. Editors should try using other typefaces and find ways to use them in conjunction with other visual effects. Irrelevant Visual Labels Some visual labels like subtitles are not exactly necessary, unless there’s a special need for them. Video is already an effective medium; overusing cues to reinforce the message will only insult the intellect of the viewers. It takes away the viewer’s liberty to interpret scenes and decipher what’s in store for them.Skillsare not the only thing that separates amateurs from professionals; it’s the willingness to improve. A budding filmmaker can go a level higher by veering away from these slipups.
