Kes Akalaonu

Kes Akalaonu is a video editor, freelancer and much more.  He shares what it takes to become a video producer, editor and more importantly a storyteller.

He gives some practical advice for beginner editors:

1. Cut any and everything to get practice

2. Learn to get the most out of your non linear editor without going to a motion graphic program.

3. Use motion graphics to enhance your project and don’t use it as a crutch for a bad video or story.
