Interview with Bonner young  (Carrick TV editor)


So what exactly do you do?

Well, we tell people what is happening in the week. My job is to take the video clip and cut out the unneeded pieces, while adding music and text.


How long does editing normally take?

It normally takes half an hour to film it, and another half hour to actually edit it. After this, we give this to Mr Reilly who transfers this to the TVs.


Finally, do you enjoy your job as editor?

I find it enjoyable however sometimes the responsibility is demanding!
