    Hi Guys,

    I am an assistant editor from Europe, and I want to move to US. Where should I look for some job opportunities? Are there any websites, forums, groups you reccomend?

    I work in FCP 7, FCP X and After Affects
    + lots of other skills

    Let me know where should I search

    Where do you plan to move to? Best opportunities for assistant editors is NY and LA…more in LA than NY. Places to look are,…and by networking and befriending editors.

    And you better start learning Avid. FCP 7 is still in use in parts of this town, as it refuses to die. But it is fading, and Avid Media Composer is gaining ground. Premiere Pro is appearing as well, but if you want to be a marketable assistant editor, you must know Avid media Composer.

    Shane, Joe, thank you for your advices!

    Shane, I haven’t decided where to move yet – it depends on job. Of course I would prefer LA.

    It seems in Europe FCP is also fading, and Avid seems to be the only future. Yet, suprisingly some huge recent projects I’ve been working on where made with FCP7.

    And yes, I work also with Avid 🙂 It’s just FCP I am so familiar with that I can work with my eyes closed.
