EYE Edit Lab
EYE Edit Lab is a flexible, hybrid program designed for non-professional editors, to help see you through your documentary edit from start to finish.
If you've been looking for expert documentary editing guidance that doesn't cost a fortune, EYE Edit Lab is for you.
As a filmmaker, chances are you aren't exactly flush with funds to edit your documentary. So you decided to do it yourself. But you're too intimidated to get started. Or the deeper in you get, the more you realize how hard editing really is.
EYE Edit Lab is designed to offer different levels of support at various price points, so you can choose the right mix of self-paced edit training and one-on-one guidance specific to your project.
It's only natural that the time you can commit goes up and down with paid projects and other life commitments – so you choose the level that best accommodates your needs, budget, and timeline.
An edit consult might be the right option if you already have a rough cut put together and you need feedback. Maybe something feels like it isn't quite working; you're not quite sure how to make it flow better; your project's been on the back burner for a while and you need help getting started again; or you know your story would benefit from a more experienced perspective.
In an edit consult, I'll affirm what's working, help you diagnose what isn't and why, and then suggest exactly what to do next to help you get unstuck and make your edit better. I'll give you feedback at both the 10,000 foot view (your story structure and framing); as well as the more granular level of shot choices, scene building, and transitions.
I'll also shed light on the reasoning behind my suggestions by putting them within the context of the principles and practices of editing that I employ in my own work.
The cost of an edit consult is USD$5 per minute of your cut, rounding up to the nearest minute. Click on the button below to schedule a quick call to see if an edit consult is right for you.
