Finding the right editing software can be daunting, time consuming and most importantly EXPENSIVE. You need it to have the right functionality so you can edit your film to how you want to tell the story. For your beautiful vision to be recognised to its fullest. Editing is one of the biggest components to moulding this to your style. Obviously you need it written and shot in the style but without editing it correctly, you’re left with nothing…

Well. A slight exaggeration, but you get the idea.
