The Joys of Porn Video Editing for a Living

What can I tell you about the joys of porn video editing? Well for many people in the world it would be their dream job…and they would be right.  How can I find a fault in having a job that enables me to watch beautiful women all day having sex on camera?

Joys of Porn Video Editing

As a senior editor for Fake Taxi, Public Agent, Fake Driving School, and more recently, Fake Hostel, I get to see some of the very best pornstars from Europe getting laid and sucking cock on a daily basis.

Whether I’m editing for the world famous Fake Taxi or getting the colour correction prepared for a Fake Hostel scene I need to pay attention to the scene throughout the day.  Face blurring on Fake Taxi is a time consuming process and needs to be done correctly.

Subtitling on Public Agent is also a time consuming but necessary process to make sure all the Public Agent fans can follow the funny storylines throughout the whole video.

Porn Video Editing Fun

Once the basics are covered, it down to me to cut the video to keep the storyline flowing and the viewer interested.  With Fake Taxi and Fake Driving School, I have 3, 4 some times 5 cameras to cut from which makes the job so interesting.  Some Fake Taxi videos I could literally cut 5 different version of, easily.

With Public Agent it is just POV, but it’s shot in public areas so I need to be on the look out for any members of the public walking passed.  I need to blur their faces at all times.

For me, one of my favourite joys of porn video editing is that moment when I get to open up the first video file and see who the pornstar is that I am editing.  I intensionally do not looking a the paperwork until I’ve seen the video footage.  I like to be surprised and find out this way rather than looking at the names on paper.

Of course, there are the occasional bloopers that give me a giggle from time to time, whether it’s a camera falling down, or a pornstar being thrown around in the back of the Fake Taxi, I try and include as many funny moments as possible if they remain in character.

What Equipment Do I Use for Porn Video Editing?

When I first started editing porn videos, I was using a laptop attached to an external monitor for playback.  Looking back, I can’t believe how I managed to edit videos for Sarah Peachez using that equipment.

I actually still remember rocking up to meet the guys from FAKEhub and just pulled out my laptop.  I think they were slightly surprised that I was able to produce the goods on that old machine.

Porn Editing Hardware

Today, thankfully, I am working on a 24 inch iMac.  I have a G Raid external hard drive that I edit from.  The G Raid hard drive is an awesome piece of kit!  I also have to double back up all my videos that I edit on to passport drives.

The iMac is a real hardcore piece of kit.  It never lets me down.  I had never used an iMac before becoming a full-time porn editor and I can’t see myself ever going back to a Windows operating system.

Porn Editing Software

The Software that I use on a day to day basis is the awesome editing tool called Premiere Pro.  I was using Final Cut for about 7 years, but then made the switch to Creative Cloud Premiere Pro about 3 years ago.

I find using Premiere Pro much easier when dealing the MP4 files.  I also like the built in Adobe Media Encoder, rather than using a third party encoder after editing.

I also make a lot of use out of Adobe Photoshop.  It is a great piece of software to create great looking thumbnails and end slates on.

So if you have the resources, I would definitely recommend purchasing an Adobe Creative Cloud package that includes both Premiere Pro and Photoshop.  Also After Effects once you know what you are doing.

How To Be a Porn Video Editor 2020

I’ve lost count how many times I have received emails or tweets from people asking how to become a porn video editor.  So I thought rather than writing out long winded emails as a reply, I could simply send them a link to this porn video editing blog post.

First of all, I’m in no position to be giving anybody a job porn editing.  There is no point in asking me if I can get them a job editing porn. My job is a porn video editor and I do not produce my own content.

I am currently working on FAKEhub web sites, such as the world famous Fake Taxi, Public Agent amongst others.  So how DO YOU become a porn video editor? Well to be honest, you need to start from the bottom and work your way up.  Offer your services for free for a while and get a good quality showreel together to show potential clients in the future.

I actually started out editing free videos for Sarah Peachez back in 2010-2011.  I would credit her with giving my my first break in the adult industry.  I edited 5 videos for her, free of charge, whilst I was still working in my 9-5 office job.

Once you feel that you have a strong showreel together, I would recommend that you buy a domain name and set up a web site where you can advertise your services and display your showreel.  You might find it difficult to host your showreel on mainstream video hosting sites if you are showcasing pornographic editing.  you would probably have to open a PornHub account and host your showreel there.

Then social media will be your next port of call.  Having a strong social media presence will help you get your name noticed.  I’ve been able to grow my Twitter account to over 46K followers at the moment, and I find it a great source of networking.

One thing you also need to understand is that adult content creators are now producing their own content and publishing directly onto platforms such as ManyVids and OnlyFans.  It is very easy for them to record and upload directly to those platforms.  So unless you are able to provide a cheap, reliable service, there would be no point in them using your services.  I think that the only service that they would be interested in right now would be watermarking and trailers.

So there you go guys and girls. If you want to become a porn video editor, then you need to put in some time for free, get a following, and get networking.
