Going Inside the Edit with Paddy Bird

I’ve been an editor now for over twenty years. When I was starting out I looked everywhere for some course, book, video, or anything that could teach me the black art of creative editing. There are many courses design that teach you AVID, Adobe Premiere or Final Cut Pro software but nothing on the creative process.

One day I was surfing the net and found this site called “Inside the Edit.” The site was boasting the it was the world’s first “creative video editing course,” which I found very hard to believe. I took the course for a test ride and OH MY GOD, they did it, they cracked the code.

I would have killed for Inside the Edit

I would’ve killed for Inside the Edit when I was starting out. I looked up the crazy man who created this and found Paddy Bird hiding behind the curtain. Paddy Bird  is one of television’s most prolific and accomplished editors.

For the past fifteen years he has edited dozens of prime time documentary, entertainment and reality TV shows for British and American television. He has even worked in war zones, spending time editing news stories on location in Iraq.

I had to have him on the show and here we are today. This episode is one of the most enjoyable ones I’ve had to date. Just to old workhorse editors shooting the sh*t! Paddy Bird drops a ton of info on this episode.

If you want to become an editor or if you just want to have a better understanding of storytelling Inside the Edit is for you. You get over 60 tutorial videos (he plans over 200 when he’s done) and new videos added every week.

Some of these tutorials are 2 hours long. The production quality is remarkable, he even lets you download footage so you can practice yourself.

Paddy Bird: The Mad Scientist

I’m going to say it, Paddy Bird is a mad man or mental as he puts it. He has written over one million words creating this opus. What Paddy and his team have done is just remarkable. In a sea of crap video tutorials and courses Inside the Edit is just elegantly amazing.
