While shooting errors might seem fine on the set, they set themselves up for hours of frustration in editing. Shooting for the edit will save you time and money on your project.There are several reasons as to why people tend to shoot to edit. The first would be a safety net and a backup in case prior shootings turn out wrong and not the way we want it to be or something goes wrong during editing. Another reason would be because we tend to shoot to edit so we have a rough idea of the scenes and we are able to point out scenes to be re-shot and changed. Most importantly it helps raise the standards of the film and make work more efficient for those filming it. Shooting to edit is a crucial part of filming and saves a lot of time and work in case something goes wrong at some point of the film.
