Cultivating Memories for Editing

by Paddy Bird on
August 20, 2020

This week’s episode of Once Upon a Timeline is a fascinating and reflective dive into the mind and what it takes to become an editing artist. I’ve always been intrigued as to how we learn, how our creative abilities are built and how they converge with the tools we use for artistic expression.

Through cultivating different memory systems in our mind we take on the creative influences of those around us, mix them with repetitive action and give ourselves the ability to sign our own artistic signature on any project that we’re working on.

But how does this all work? What are the different types of memory that we utilise on our journey? And what are the things that can either hold us back or set us free on the path to becoming a high end editing artist? Find out in this week’s episode of Once Upon a Timeline.
