How Do I Become a Porn Video Editor?

Follow me on Twitter >>>

This is my very quick and general guide to how I got into the porn video editing business. I must admit it was straight off the cuff with no script. Just a spare of the moment idea to get a YouTube video online. It is quite an old video that I had to do quietly and in a quiet corner of my house.

I hope to do a better one in the very near future, I might even use my green screen to make a more interesting background, if you know what I mean 😉

FAQ How to become a video editor in the porn industry?

How to become a video editor in the porn industry?

This is a question I get asked a lot either via Twitter or sometimes by email. The only answer I can give is the to explain how I got in to the adult video editing business.

To start with, you need to be able to prove that you can edit videos. So you will need to start somewhere. I started by offering my services for free. I visited adult webmaster forums asking if anybody needs an extra editor that will work for free for a limited amount of time, to show that they have the skills to be able to do the job. I also created a Twitter account called XXXVideoEditor.

I was very fortunate that a Canadian model called Sarah Peachez was looking for a video editor to edit and publish her solo girl masturbation videos online. I agreed to edit some of her videos for free just to get some experience. Then after a while she decided to start paying me for me work.

I also designed free wallpapers for other porn stars and then tweeted about them on twitter and included the porn stars twitter account, hoping that she would retweet. This often worked and soon I was gathering twitter followers and my tweets, and more importantly my twitter name was getting seen.

Lucky Break

You also need a fair amount of luck using this approach. you need to be lucky enough for someone in the porn industry who are looking for editors to notice you. I was certainly very lucky when one of the biggest names in porn asked me where about’s I was based. When I told him, he told me that his porn production company are also based in the same town. This was the break I was looking for! I met the producers of FakeAgent, FemaleAgent, DaneJones, and Lesbea, and I started editing on a part-time basis until they offered me a full-time job after about 4-5 months. I was able to quit my 9-5 office job and come and work in porn!

So these would be some of my top tips :-

1. Visit adult webmaster forums and advertise your services for free to gain experience.
2. Create adult video editing themed accounts on as many social media platforms as possible and update them.
3. Create your own blog where you can showcase you video editing portfolio to potential clients.

Editing Porn in MultiCam mode in FCP 7

When I’m editing a porn video, I really enjoy using the MultiCam editing feature Final Cut Pro 7. Being able to see all the camera angles at the same time gives me the feel of being the director as well as the editor. To be able to use the MultiCam editing feature, I first of all have to make sure that all the footage I have is all at the same frame rate. So if any of the footage is shot at a different frame rate I will need to run it through Compressor 4 to match the frame rate of the other footage. Once that is done and imported in to FCP 7 I can then continue to prepare the scene for MultiCam editing.

The next stage is very important. It is crucial that the individual camera angles are all synchronised with the same in points. Hopefully the camera operators on set have used some kind of clapboard to mark synch points for the editor. If not, then it will take a little long to find suitable in points for each clip.

tammultiOnce I have created the MultiClip in FCP 7 I can then load it into the timeline and start editing the scene. Once it is loaded into the timeline I am able to see all the different camera angles playing at the same time. This is where I can decide on which camera angle is the best angle to use during the scene. With just a simple click of the mouse I can switch between camera and when I have finished, FCP7 will then create the edited points for me.  I can then go through the timeline and make any fine adjustments to the edit points if I need to.

I find this style of editing much easier and quicker than having to load each camera angle onto different layers on the timeline.  Being able to see all the angles at the same time is far easier than having to look at each individual clip separately.

This scene I was editing was a scene that will be coming soon to
