I’d avoid “cloud” solutions


I’d avoid “cloud” solutions if possible, primarily because of the up-load/down-load time involved. Unless you have a T1 line it’s going to take quite a while to download source files of any size.

If you’re all in the same area I would suggest putting the project onto an external hard drive. Have one of you edit — group editing is asking for disaster — pass the hard drive off to #2, who can color correct to match cameras and do any grading you all feel is necessary, then have the hard drive go to #3 who can upload to YouTube.

If you like to work with bins and have so much material that’s necessary, #2 and #3 could go through the material before it comes to #1 and get everything organized, pretty much like assistant film editors would do.
