An Editor, A Storyteller.
The editor is a storyteller, a story teller of the future, the present and the past. Through the interpretation of the written story and the presented images, as a puzzle, we splice together a flawless symphony that guides its viewers through its construction. It is through this construction that greater meaning is given to a story and that the audience’s sensitivity to montage is challenged. By emphasizing the correct images and minimizing the flawed ones, a beautiful balance is created between the story, underlying information and lighting and pacing. It is an art that is so precise, so fine, that is often left unnoticeable.
Furthermore, editing serves as a universal language, connecting people together through the use of images. It truly is a seemingly magical process of transformation, creation, and combination. For me, the latter part is what connects me the most to editing. Coming from Hungary and being partially raised in The Netherlands, at times it is hard to express my ideas in a written or spoken matter. Even though I speak all these languages fluently, there is always something that I will miss. It will never fully be my mother language. There will always be certain intonation and certain sayings that I say incorrectly, just because I did not grow up with it. Editing creates a space for me, where I can combine everything that I have ever seen, experienced, or felt; and communicate it to someone foreign to me, and still make them feel and understand what I want them to feel and understand.
What I am striving towards in my professional life is not to be the most popular editor, but to constantly be challenged to be better. For this, I aim to never forget that editing is an art form caught in the world of business. In order to stay in tune with my inner artist, whom in my opinion is someone partially removed from but also inextricably linked to the tangible world, should approach everything with a childlike curiosity in order to harness a feeling, a timelessness with his/her images, though they are ephemeral in nature.
In order to do so I aim to constantly challenge and expand my skill set, adjust to new technologies, and remain open to criticism. If I succeed in doing so, I will be able to fulfill my passion for editing by catering to the artist in me, but also catering to my audiences- who define the entertainment industry.
