What makes a hot-shot editor or great edit?

Edit Royale is a fun, live and interactive event brought to you by the Australian Screen Editors. Live at Digistor's offices in Sydney, five editors have two hours to edit a one-minute music video from the same set of rushes. The race is on to stand out before the audience votes on who will be the winner.

This year we have some secret challenges to push them out of their comfort zone and inspire their creativity.

The editor who produces the best edit of the night will win great prizes.
