You know you’re a video editor when…

Actually the video was from a third party website for informational purposes (it’s possible the website had some sort of political leanings but I’m not familiar enough with the site to know). There were two people talking on screen and it’s clear that they were both on wireless mics, but the two people were split completely separately into the left and right audio channels. I don’t know what the editor was thinking or if they were thinking at all.

One of the first rules of filmmaking is that people will watch your video if the image quality is total crap and the sound is good, but they won’t watch it if your video is pristine and audio is awful.
