Music Video Editors


Music video editors are not as highly paid as others working in their industry. They have less clout than directors or producers, but they have more authority in the production of a project than camera operators and technicians working on the set. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, the median annual wage for film and video editors was $62,650 in May 2018. The lowest paid 10 percent made less than $31,940 a year, while the top paid 10 percent earned more than $170,040. The most experienced and sought-after video editors can command much higher salaries.
