Whether it be film, television or any other visual-based media platform, new advances in technology are forcing us to adapt the way we work in our creative roles. These changes are felt no less than in the cutting room. Visual effects can give the editor endless opportunities to enhance the transition process form script to screen, carving out dynamic and compelling techniques to tell a story. Exploiting these new forms of visual storytelling can make for exciting results and a strong knowledge of VFX workflows is an attractive tool for any editor to have as part of their routine kit.
