Outsource video editors to the Philippines


What is a video editor?

A video editor is responsible for exactly that, editing videos. They look after pre and post-production changes to films, movies, videos and any recorded content that your organisation creates. They work closely with a variety of stakeholders to ensure the best video outcome by essentially, telling a story in the most compelling way to get the desired response from its viewers.

Video editing duties and tasks can include:

  • Cutting and rearranging scenes without losing the integrity of the video
  • Taking into account audience attention span and length of video content accordingly
  • Post-production video enhancements such as CGI, special effects and sound
  • Liaise with stakeholders to understand the concept they envision for the finished product
  • Adjust video content for different social media platforms as necessary.

These video editing tasks are particularly well-suited to being outsourced. Organisations free up their local marketing teams’ time (or the need to pay hefty amounts for external editors) by sending these tasks to outsourced video editors. This allows your onshore team to focus on performing higher value, revenue generating work.


What key skills and qualifications make a great video editor?

Video editors need to have a creative and open-minded approach to producing and editing recorded content. They have to possess the ability to translate the vision to stakeholders into physical form. This requires interpretation skills and strong communication techniques. They also work with graphic designers to include engaging graphics to amplify the final video.

Outsourcing service providers recruit video editors the same way an internal, talent acquisition team would. Essentially, they ask the same questions to understand whether these offshore candidates would be able to provide the level of quality required by Australian organisations:

  • What experience and knowledge do you have editing video content?
  • How familiar are you with adjusting videos for different platforms?
  • Do you have a showreel of your successful video edits? If so, can you show us?
  • How do you ensure excellent communication when speaking with relevant stakeholders, to understand the tone, message and target audience they are hoping to reach?
  • Are you familiar with media production and computer software such as Final Cut Pro and Adobe Premiere?
  • Provide an example of how you showcased a high level of accuracy and attention to detail.
  • What pre and post production planning skills do you use to ensure the final product attracts and engages with target audiences?

In terms of qualifications, a higher education degree or certificate in film and television studies, media production or a creative media diploma is desirable. Outsourcing companies can help you find the right candidate to meet your organisation's marketing requirements by hiring these editors who can efficiently create and develop content with your onshore teams to increase revenue.

Benefits of outsourcing video editing roles

Organisations are able to appreciate the added benefits that come from offshoring video editing duties to the Philippines, including:

  • Increased employee satisfaction

    Give your local team peace of mind by relieving them of any unnecessary tasks and sharing the workload with an offshore team or team member. This will help increase employee satisfaction within your business. With your video editing team able to focus on what they were hired to do, you can expect to see a positive change in your working atmosphere.

  • Cost savings

    Hiring local staff can prove very costly to an organisation. Hiring an offshore team member that can assist your local team with routine video editing tasks for a fraction of the price will help you control costs in your organisation, saving up to 70% when compared to hiring locally.

  • Business growth

    Hiring full time offshore video editing can help increase profits and supercharge your business growth. By adding extra capability through an offshore team, your local employees will have additional capacity to take on more work and grow your business sustainably.

  • Efficiency increase

    Sending daily, time consuming, repeatable systems administrator tasks offshore will allow your local team to take on more work. By sharing the workload between your onshore and offshore team, you will notice a drastic increase in efficiency and productivity within your organisation.
