5 Reasons Why Every Director Should Be an Editor
Hidden Woods Film Co. Director, Aidan McCarthy, explains why learning how to edit can substantially improve your directorial prowess.
At Hidden Woods, we've found clarity in a simple truth about production - your videos will only be as good as the creative development you put into them. By asking ourselves the tough questions about our approach up-front, we've elevated our end products substantially.
Our Canon lenses have treated us well over the years. We started with zooms, then upgraded our zooms, then moved to primes, then moved to better primes. The L Series primes were our go to in house kit since 2016, but as time went on we started noticing more and more flaws in the glass that left us wanting more.
As Hidden Woods continues to grow and evolve, we seem to be leaning even harder on our roots in documentary style work. Commercial film production is still draped over the skeleton of story, and I’ve always held that there’s enough stories to be heard that are already out there.
