I am trying to help out a 17 year old high school junior whose film editing experience to date is high school media classes. The bug really bit her and she plansto attend a local JC in film with transfer to a 4-year program her ultimate goal. She wants twants to purchase an editing program for home use. Before she spends her hard earned money, I thought she should attempt to gather some advice. Anyone out there willing/able to provide some insight?
