Anime industry

I'm curious. Does the anime industry actually have room for video editors as an actual career?

I'm sure they do, any company using film and video would need an editor,, although it wouldn't be nearly as fun as editing to music you could still do it as a career.

There is 3 things I love. Music, movies, and anime. Anything involving them would make me truly happy. I plan on attending college to get a bachelors in film.

Any form of filmed media will need editors, but from what I understand, the role of editors in anime production is significantly less than that of editors in film. Unlike when you're filming something, it's simply too expensive to animate stuff that you're not going to use, so most of the cuts are worked out at the storyboard stage. Editors in anime will be doing very minimal trimming and compiling and the most.

It's the sad truth. I just want to do something fun in life. I'm going to be studying in film at probably full sail. I wanted to do movies, music videos, but of course I'm opening to anything. (Except the porn industry haha)

I'd be surprised if they get paid more than the animators in Japan, who are sort of well known for being notoriously underpaid and overworked.

If you speak Japanese well, then who knows? Maybe you could get a job over there. But the competition is probably really tough, I doubt they seriously consider employing foreign workers, and you could probably find a better job working in American animation, anyway.
