Sound Editor

Odds of Hanging On

If your editing is choppy, the dialogue doesn't line up, and the music you insert into scenes doesn't exactly fit ("Freak on a Leash" may not have been the best choice for that tender love scene), then you might be in trouble.

However, the picture business isn't going anywhere, so if you can get in and prove yourself worthy, you should have a long and fruitful career as a sound editor. (Sound effect of cash register opening.)
