Discover the Best Video Editing Classes in NYC

Video Editors manipulate and rearrange video clips, audio, and effects in order to create video content that tells a story or conveys some other message to the audience. While most people associate video editing with the film and television industry, Video Editors also work in a wide range of other industries. For example, they create educational content for schools, design social media content, and craft marketing material. 

Video content is a popular tool for businesses of many types, making video editing skills a valuable asset. Researchers have found that video is a very effective way to get people’s attention, and to help them understand and remember information. For instance, according to a recent LinkedIn post, when video is used on social media, it gets 1200 percent more shares than text and image content combined, and when viewers receive information in a video, they retain 95 percent of it, compared to only 10 percent if they read it in text.

It ranks the New York metropolitan area at number two–after Los Angeles–for the highest employment level of Film and Video Editors. Overall, it estimates that about four-and-a-half thousand people are employed in this profession in the New York City area. This is almost half as many as Los Angeles, however, it is far more than the number three ranking, which is the Chicago area, with just under 300 people employed.

BLS also provides salary estimates for Film and Video Editors. In New York City, they earn close to $110,000 per year. This is far higher than the national average of $60,000.
