Telluride, Colorado –based ProEditors, a video editing solution that transforms people’s raw point-of-view camera footage into professionally edited movies that are more easily shared, was founded earlier this year by Patrick Latcham and his girlfriend who were making extra cash editing GoPro footage for family and friends. They soon realized how this concept could be expanded beyond their personal network.
ProEditors uses a hybrid production process that combines crowdsourcing of experienced video editors with automation of specific segments of the video editing process to deliver a low cost, high quality edit to consumers and companies. The ProEditors video editing platform lowers the average editing time from four hours to just 20 minutes so users “can spend more time in the field shooting and less time in front of a screen editing.”

This month the duo is teaming up with 3D Robotics (3DR) to give 3DR Solo drone owners a 20 percent discount on ProEditors video editing services. Register your drone to receive a code, upload raw video to the ProEditors website, enter the discount code at checkout, and receive a professionally edited final product in just a couple days.
By now most people are starting to figure out: shooting POV footage is easy, creating a professional-looking final edit that people will actually want to watch is hard. Most of the time you just end up with hours of bumpy footage of your nephew skiing downhill in front of you.
To use ProEditors, users submit raw video footage to its online video uploader, highlight any favorite scenes, and in a couple days receive a link to a final edit, including a soundtrack, color enhancement and stabilization and other tweaks as necessary. There’s a “revise” button on the site to tailor the final product more your liking.
Camera companies understand video editing is difficult and time consuming, so they are acquiring software editing platforms to help make the process more user-friendly. ProEditors is a step ahead of the curve, offering editing services to anyone who wants to use it. And with the increasing popularity of drone footage, their partnership with 3DR makes it easier than ever for amateur videographers to create pro-quality edits.
