Let me ask you this.
Why not edit the film yourself? Are the the overall director or are you just the producer or money man for the project?
Personally, when I shoot something, I want to be in control of how it is made because I know what I want and it is dificult to express that to someone else.
Do none of the people whom helped you film the documentary know how to edit? I figure that the best resource you have are videographer’s who filmed the thing. THey will know better than anyone what the look and feel of the final project should be. Not to mention that you have already worked with them, so they kind of know what YOU might be looking for.
