About a decade, if you’re being honest. The vast majority of video editors I know have about seven years of experience.
What does the future hold for editing software?
I have no doubt that after the massive changes we’ve seen with the way we edit now, editing will change a whole lot in the next five to ten years. I’m convinced it will be a completely new form of editing software that will take us from 3D to 4D in a matter of a couple of years. My guess is there will be a market for this technology, especially if we have the right software.
What advice would you give to aspiring audio and video editors?
The best advice is to read. Listen to what people are saying about how their video editing software is useful. Make sure you try a couple of different programs, because a lot of them have some really innovative things that are worth playing around with. Read tutorials on editing. Listen to a lot of podcasts.

I remember hearing that a woman can make a convincing man feel like a man when she speaks to him by telling him how much she loves him.
I remember seeing an ad for the first female-centric movie, “Men at Play.” (I don’t want to spoil anything by saying that it does well, but I do want you to read it if you haven’t already.)
When I was watching “Men at Play” one evening, I saw a scene in which a man who had recently had sex with a woman talked about how the next time he was with her she would have him over a dinner
