Music Editor

Like the dialogue editor, the music editor works on a specific section of the sound track. The music editor works with the composer, taking notes for cues, helping to organize recording sessions, and making sure they run smoothly. Once the recording is done, the music editor actually sits down with the audiotape and cuts it to match the picture. Basically, the music editor is responsible for all the music on the film.

The way to get into it is to start at the bottom. An apprentice is always needed, and if you're willing to work hard and work cheap, you'll get work. From there, you move on to being an assistant, then an editor in your own right. Once you're a music editor, you start the cycle all over when some young kid comes up to you and asks if there's anything he or she can do to help out, and you end up with your very own apprentice.
