Editor for short indie

Recommended Posts

I've not posted for awhile, but I thought I'd ask this here, since I'm not certain how to get going.

I started shooting a short film a few years back. It's a no-dialogue/silent film in the Chaplin/Keaton/Tati style. Since I'm basically an amateur, I just asked a few friends to help me shoot a couple ideas I'd had. 

Buster Keaton would start shooting with a beginning and an end, then find the rest as he went. Since I have no one to please, but myself, I followed this model. (I do understand that few pros work like this anymore.)

Long and short is, I have the second act "in the can," but I just don't have the technique to edit the piece in the way I want. I don't have the computing power or Final Cut/Premiere skills. Even auteurs don't do everything. 


I'm looking for some help in editing my film. I'm not even sure how to choose an editor. I act, write, direct, and produce, so I'm not totally green, but I'd like to chat about getting at least what I've currently shot cut together. Thanks!
