ABOUT

I love creating great stories! Hi, my name is Ross J. Helton and I'm an editor, not a button pusher. My role in the film making process is to facilitate the movies' core thoughts and emotion to the viewers in the best way possible. I must take a bunch of raw material and wheedle it into something magical. I must understand human emotion and actions. I must search though massive amounts of data to find the perfect emotion for every moment. Every decision made will affect the next and I must understand and adapt to these reactions of my choices. The best editors are invisible editors. If you don't see the cuts and don't question the story decisions the editor is making good editorial choices.

 

These are the ideals that I apply to myself and my work. I am responsible for all of these tasks and take them very seriously but never loose track of enjoying the process. With these skills and my technical abilities I have had very good results. I am currently living and working in Los Angeles and am pursuing my dream to be a feature film editor.
