I believe that shooting techniques are very important to an editor. It is true that the editor can manipulate a film and its effect by editing different clips or scenes together in the right way, however, this can only happen if the editor has the right clips at his or hers disposal. The editor has to have these clips in place, and must know what clips work together brilliantly, to get the best result. Longside that, the editor must share the same vision as the director, as at the end of the day, the film has to be unique and give the right image and feel. The editor must know why the director has chosen to films scenes certain ways and why they have chosen certain techniques, as without knowing this, the film will not have the right feel that the director was aiming for.
