How To Edit a Rough Cut LIGHTNING FAST!
Step 1) Be Bad.
Just be bad. Accept that the cut is going to be bad. It definitely won't be the best. Might not be great. Probably won't be good, either. Likely eh... Shoot for bad.
Don't worry about what people are going to think or blahblahblah. If speed is the objective, quality MUST go out the window. You're making a chair at this point, not art. And sometimes, that's an important step in the creation of art.
And remember - Revision's later.
Step 2) Break Movie Duration Into Small Hourly Chunks
Break down the amount of time you have to edit into hourly chunks based on the amount of minutes you have to edit. Do this no matter how unrealistic the goal.
So let's say you have to edit a 5 minute movie in one day, divide the day into 8 hours... That would mean you need to edit about :45 seconds per hour.
Or if you have to edit a 64 minute movie in 2 days, that's approximately 4 minutes per hour. Even this is possible if you bypass any notion of artistry & instead see yourself more as an assembler of random bits of footage. Your job is just to put the footage on the timeline to show whoever-it-is that everything's coherent & kosher.
