I demo the most critical editing technique I use when I start cutting any feature film or documentary. Pro-editor don't rely on their talent alone. They all have a system. It took me over a decade to perfect mine and you can experience how it works in less than 30 min.

  • 70% of great editing comes from applying this single editing technique.

  • I show it to you applied to a film starring Oscar-winner Melissa Leo (The Fighter,) Teresa Palmer (Hacksaw Ridge,) and Mark Webber (Scott Pilgrim vs. The World.)

  • As a bonus, I also show you how I used this system on a full-length documentary film produced by Magnolia Pictures.


Sven Pape

Film Editor

I'm an ACE Award-nominated editor who cut for James Cameron (3D-Imax 'Ghosts Of The Abyss'), Mark Webber (Sundance Grand Jury Prize nominee, 'The End of Love'), and Joseph Gordon-Levitt (Emmy-Winning 'HitRECord on TV'). Films I cut premiered at Sundance, SXSW, Cannes, and played theatrically across the nation. I worked as Supervising Editor on several TV shows on networks like Bravo, E!, and Fox. I was the Go-To Editor for companies like Fremantle Media (American Idol) and cut pilots for them for more than five years. My YouTube Channel 'This Guy Edits' has over 475k subscribers and focuses on creative storytelling and editing. I taught Film Editing at Columbia College Hollywood, and I am a regular guest lecturer at the UCLA Film Extension. I now designed this course where I teach you everything I know about becoming a Go-To Editor.

"Morning Sven. 

I finally used your methodology and WOW, the first video I edited at work blew everyone’s socks off on my team!!

Our creative director actually brought it up again the other day in a separate conversation (for this week’s new edit) and was intrigued how I had all of sudden pulled out great cutaways etc and made such a good edit. So, I told him about yourself, your channels and your tutorial I watched. He asked me to send it to him and I just did before sending you this email:)

Thank you, Sven. Really appreciate you."
