The 90to5 Editing Challenge is all about the art & fun of film editing. We encourage you to take part in our contest to polish you editing skills, have fun, learn and teach
Cut a 90 minute feature down to 5
We dare you to edit a full feature length movie down to 5 minutes… without losing the essence of the story! Basically, you create a short film using material provided by the 90 minute feature (Best Edit Award).
Or create a totally new story from the original footage for the Fun Edit Award.
It’s as easy as falling off a log
1. Pick your favorite movie
2. Start up the editing software of your choice and cut away… 3. Upload your masterpiece ’til October 25th 2015!
Watch last year’s edits to get inspired
Quite a couple of awesome edits can be found at 90to5.org or at our youtube channel. Notice the differences in movies that have been edited multiple times.

This is just to let you know we are back on track for the 90to5 Editing Challenge 2015. We have been bustling for a couple of weeks now, still talking to sponsors and preparing other things (if you have a rich uncle who always wanted see his name/logo on some web banners, let us know). However, it shouldn’t be too long until our call for entries goes out… thinking about 1. of August 2015.
As always, if you have ideas on how to improve the challenge – let us know.
We are very excited about this year’s event and look forward to another bunch of awesome edits!
The decisions our great jury had to take where incredibly tough this year! So don’t be disappointed if your name is not on the list – we would have needed way more awards to give to all those outstanding edits! Congratulations to everybody who took part this year, and of course to this year’s winners: http://90to5.org/winners-2014/
Thank you so much again to all 90to5 editors and enjoy the festive season! Keep editing, rocking and ’til next year 😀
Thank you once more for your awesome edits this year! Even though it is a lot of fun, 56 edits is a lot to watch for you (choosing the Editor’s Pick Award) as well as the jury determining the Best Edit Awards and the Fun Edit Award. Now the jury needs a little bit more time to thoroughly consider every edit. And it looks like the Editor’s Pick Award can use a few more votes too, in order to yield solid results.
I know most of you are curious and so are we. But the 90to5 editors as well as the jurors have busy lives (some even as professional editors) besides watching and voting for the 90to5 Editing Challenge. That’s why we have to postpone the voting deadline to December 15, 2014. Sorry and thanks for understanding!
Enjoy some Christmas cookies while watching another few 90to5 edits 😀
Kudos to all 90to5 editors! They were very busy this year and edited 56 movies altogether – but not only the quantity but also the quality and variety of the edits submitted is stunning!
