[Bob Zelin] "one day, everyone will know how to edit, and it will all be over for most of us"

I heard this from linear editors when Avid camp around. And then from Avid editors when FCP-Legacy came around. Now Premiere editors when (that non-professional ) Project Rush comes out (I'm kidding here of course)? And so it goes.

I think for most of us it's not knowing "how to edit": anyone can learn a software. Its about knowing how to tell a compelling story in an efficient timeframe. My answer back then and now is always the same: Be better. Be good enough so your clients can't afford to be looking elsewhere no matter what the cost. If there is a kid out there who is better, then they deserve the work.
