This Guy Edits talks about the timing of when to show your film’s rough cut to those that make the critical calls.
In film editing there is always the initial excitement by the producer/director/client to get eyes on a first cut. But when should you, the film editor, let anyone see your work? If you wait too long the people that matter get anxious and the expectations rise. But on the other hand, if you show an edit prematurely you might disappoint.
I talk about my strategy to aim for the best outcome to this problem.
