Hey Anurag,

Are you serious about the above asked question????

My question to you then is How will you edit the video????

Gone are the days when editors would manually cut and paste each scenes together and forma film.

These days everything is technical and everything is software related.

So Software knowledge is a must.

Any issue pertaining to the software, you must know how to troubleshoot.
You cannot waste time in calling a techie and getting the software changed and then continue with your work. It would be a loss of time or a delay in your work.

Rather keeping abrested with the latest in software is a must for you.

So apart form a degree in Broadcasting or Video editing, I would highly recommend, pursuing certificate courses in Software too.

Hope this helps.

Wish you good luck.............

Dear Aspirant,

There is almost nothing which can be done without technology.

Video editing is a part of media and communication domain. There are sophisticated softwares available for video editing, etc. These softwares are like God for such domain professionals.

The only important thing in video editing is technology and it is a very much to learn it. You will not be able to find a job and get a job where technology is not required or known.

You should software applications relating to media industry to survive and rise.

Best wishes
