Hi everyone,

I am a newbie video editor who has been tasked with cutting (and crafting) a doc about the illuminati. The footage I have so far is just interviews with 5 different 'experts'. There is about 12 or so hours of the interviews. The director wants the doc to be 3 hours, but I'm thinking there is only enough good stuff to make 2 hours.

I am having trouble with organizing all the footage, and figuring out how to craft the doc for a target audience. There is not too much new info in there, so I am looking to target people who don't know much about the illuminati. Luckily (in a demographic sense) this is most everyone on Earth. The Director is pretty inexperienced (though more experienced than I) and has basically handed the project over to me. He doesn't have a clear vision of the project, and wants me to figure it out.

This is all pretty daunting, but the challenge is exciting. I am thinking I will probably learn more about what not to do than what to do in this experience although that is not a very positive outlook.
If anyone has any advice for me I would much appreciate it! Please message me here, or my email is positivecontact (at)
Thanks :)

Hi all,

Not too sure what to put here, but thought it would be rude not to introduce myself.

I'm to about to embark on making my first documentary film, after really enjoying devising a couple of documentary theatre pieces at uni.

The site was recommended to me in the book I'm reading at the moment, book and site very useful so far!
