    I've been editing videos for over 6 years and working as a freelance YouTube Video Editor for more than 2 years, editing hundreds of videos for dozens of clients. I specialize in editing educational content for YouTube, but I also have experience with online courses, travel videos, and vlogs. My skills range from creative editing, using green-screen effects, sound effects, and text animation, to more straightforward editing with jump cuts and simple transitions, all tailored to my clients' preferences. From selecting the perfect music to adding engaging graphics and transitions, I've been enjoying video editing for the past six years. If you're in need of a creative and responsive video editor with strong communication skills, feel free to get in touch!

    Hi there, my name is Mariah Robinson and I am a graduate of the University of Southern California. At USC, I studied Theatre Performance (B.A.) and had a minor in marketing, with an emphasis in social media. I graduated in May of 2015, and have been pursuing my dream of acting ever since. In my time post-grad, I have started a YouTube channel to have a creative outlet to focus on in between auditions. I received my first video camera at the age of 7 and have been shooting my own content and editing my own footage ever since. I truly get a rush whenever I am editing video footage -- I have an idea in mind, and I will spend however long I need to, to fully create what I've envisioned in my head. I have extensive knowledge with Final Cut Pro X and iMovie, as well as knowledge with Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom. I consider myself a perfectionist when it comes to my video editing, yet I am still able to edit my videos fairly quickly. Whatever the challenge may be, I am ready to take it on.

    I have a BA in Film Production with over 13 years of experience doing various media work from writing, producing, directing, filming, and editing. In recent years, I've primarily focused on editing YouTube videos. The tools I utilize are the Adobe Creative Suite, libraries that include stock video, graphics and effects, sound FX, etc. (Adobe, Envato, Storyblocks, and Pixabay), and both Google Drive and Dropbox for storage. If I don’t have what I need for your video, I either get it or create it from scratch. Turnaround time depends on the nature of your video, but if it is not graphic or effect heavy, I typically have it back to you within 48 business hours, and more often than not, in less than 24 hours.

How to Hire Top Video Editors

How to hire video editors

They say a picture is worth a thousand words. A video captures motion in thousands of pictures. It’s no wonder so many businesses wish to include video in their content marketing campaigns. If you want to create professional videos for your business, a video editor can help.

So how do you find a video editor? What follows are some tips on finding top video editors on Upwork.

How to shortlist video editing professionals

As you’re browsing available video editing consultants, it can be helpful to develop a shortlist of the freelancers you may want to interview. You can screen profiles on criteria such as:

  • Brand fit.
  • Portfolio.
  • Feedback.

How to write an effective video editing job post

With a clear picture of your ideal video editor in mind, it’s time to write that job post. Although you don’t need a full job description as you would when hiring an employee, aim to provide enough detail for a contractor to know if they’re the right fit for the project.

An effective video editing job post should include:

  • Scope of work: From video collages to covering an event, list all the deliverables you’ll need.
  • Project length: Your job post should indicate whether this is a smaller or larger project.
  • Background: If you prefer experience working with certain industries or media platforms, mention this here.
  • Budget: Set a budget and note your preference for hourly rates vs. fixed-price contracts.
  • Video type: Do you need live action footage (e.g. a product video) you’ve shot or sourced online (e.g. stock clips edited along a storyline), an animated video using motion graphics or digital animation, like a whiteboard video, or a hybrid video that uses a combination of both?

Ready to give your video content that professional look and feel? Log in and post your video editing job on Upwork today.

Consider including any of the following for more detail:

  • Background information. What is your company or business? What products or services do you provide?
  • Business goals and scope of the project. Explain the purpose of the video(s) and what you hope to accomplish with them.
  • Where will the footage come from?
  • Explain how the videos will be used and where they’ll be published.
  • Include your timeline, budget, and deliverables.Be sure to build in time for feedback and rounds of revision. Be specific about what file format you want the video to be delivered in, and any resolution specifics.

VIDEO EDITORS FAQ

What is video editing?

Video editing is the art of cutting, manipulating, and rearranging video to create a new work. It refers to all the post-production tasks that go into turning raw footage into a compelling video. Video editors cut excess footage, choose which reels to highlight, touch up audio, and add graphics and effects that go into a final product.

Here’s a quick overview of the skills you should look for in video editing professionals:

  • Video editing and production
  • Video editing tools such as Adobe Premiere Pro
  • Photo editing tools such as Photoshop
  • Motion graphics software such as After Effects

Depending on their specialties, video editors may be behind the camera, in the audio booth, behind a computer, or all of the above. The video producer you engage may be able to help with the following:

  • Video conceptualizing and storyboarding
  • Sourcing footage: Live action clips, stock clips, or screen capture
  • Motion design, animated graphics or text. Note that motion graphics is a very different skill than editing, but the two can overlap. If your video is strictly animated, be sure to engage a motion graphics designer.
  • Sound recording and editing, voice over editing, and music selection
  • Transitions, color grading, effects, and pacing with music
  • Optimization and publishing

Why hire video editors?

Want to start producing high-quality videos to support your business? To begin assembling your video dream team, you need to start with a thorough creative brief. This will help you craft attention-grabbing, effective job post to attract the top talent you need.

Your logical first hire will be the cornerstone of your video team—a video editor. A video editor can help with it all: Establishing a storyline, sourcing clips, designing transitions, and editing together your finished product. They’ll be able to coordinate with other talent like voice over artists and scriptwriters every step of the way, and handle the final publishing steps.

The trick to finding top video editors is to identify your needs. Is your intention to create a promotional video for a product launch? Or are you creating educational materials for an online course? Do you require experience adding motion graphics to your video for a new ad? The cost of your video editing project will depend largely on your scope of work and the specific skills needed to bring your project to life.
