One of the main reasons for an award-winning film editor’s salary is to attract applicants who are looking for a better job than their current one.
As a film editor, you are probably expected to perform other tasks as well as edit a feature film, like a music score, and even direct commercials. So, a good salary can help bring other tasks into consideration, such as working as video consultant or production assistant.
How do film editors get paid?
The general system is through the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. The awards ceremony starts with a screening and awards are given depending on the scores given to the feature films, which range from “Certified Gold” to “Certified Platinum”.
After winning an award, you have 30 days to collect your payout, so it’s best to call a lawyer before doing so to make sure you have all of your paperwork together before you submit your salary to a bank, credit card, or other payment processor.
Is there a minimum salary required to work as a film editor?
No, there is no specific minimum salary required to work as a film editor.
This is because a film editor is typically considered a “production” person, meaning they don’t make direct film edits and instead work as supervisors on other teams working on the production, or as editors for a film editor’s own films.
If you haven’t heard of Fade to Black, we recommend you give it a look.
The world-renowned British label is a one-man band who created the world of digital and physical art in the early 2000s. Since then they’ve released some of the greatest albums I’ve ever owned, and have released some of the best releases on cassette, and vinyl. They started their own label in 2006, which they released the amazing NIN EP and the brilliant Darker and Denier album on.
Fade To Black is an incredibly talented and unique artist who has crafted one of the most creative projects I’ve ever heard, and will be very missed when they take the stage at the end of this month at the O2 Arena, London.
Here’s a list of artists who have made music with Fade To Black. It’s by no means complete, but it’s as good as it gets in terms of the people involved.
