Whether you are in the animation production or film making industry or series making for your channel on Youtube, one important source of having the story and plot for your content is from comic series. Working with editors and asking for license to use their comic series hit for your animated video series for feature films might be the shortest path to get your content being recognized widely.

To persuade editors, the first job you need to do is to understand their jobs and talk to them in their language. This post and the next post will be about editor job, the process and what’s they should do and should not do to deliver their job successfully.

Editor’s responsibility

In the credits of a comic are the names of at least half a dozen people, all of whom played a role in the creation of modern mainstream comics. You already know that there is a writer and an artist. In this assembly line there are also colorists, who bring light, texture, depth and tonality to the black and white pages. In the midst of all these creative professionals, there is usually one person who helps put all of this together. One person can manage the diverse personalities, styles, and needs of creative staff. And despite the power used, this person generally does not receive praise or attention from the fan base. But when things don’t go according to plan, this person should definitely be responsible.

If you haven’t guessed it yet, he’s the editor. Editors manage the creative workflow and all the pieces are typically an assembly line system to create a publishable comic. Editors are also often responsible for the overall tone, consistency, and content of the final product.

Editing can be a high pressure job and it can also be difficult to survive. Seasoned editors often have processes and infrastructure they trust to work with. If one step in this process is out of place, the entire program can be easily removed.

The process of making a comic

Editors, in almost all types of publications, have immense power and responsibility. They are not only responsible for the creation of the comic, they must also be masters in project management. The editorial process is unique, personal and dynamic. Every editor and editor has a system that works for them, often based on years of trial and error.

Generally, the story begins with the editor and the writer. They often collaborate to discuss concepts and directions for characters and plots. This is a process that can happen very quickly or it can take weeks or even months.

Comic editors perform a variety of roles, depending on their position within the company. In most cases, editors work with the creative team to shape individual stories and stories. But even before that, editors form a creative team to ultimately shape individual stories and stories. But wait, even before that, the editor decides which recommendations to read from each creator and who will eventually join the creative team that will one day shape individual stories and stories.
