Welcome to the 90to5 Editing Challenge

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 November 1st 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.
