We recently held a contest at VideoBlocks to find the coolest video editing setups out there. After going through about 1,200 submissions, we came to the conclusion that cats and dogs love to edit videos almost as much as we humans do! Here are our top 10 favorite video editing animal pictures!

10. Someone is Watching – Scott Sailer

It is always good to have an extra pair of eyes around when you have a creative cat in the house.

9. Marmaduke Edits, Too! – Tyler Welker 

Rumor has it that after Marmaduke: The Movie turned out to be a flop, the four legged star went back to brush up his editing skills.

8. Editing is a Dog Eat Dog World! – Archie Brooksbank 

This little guy looks like he is getting ready to finish up the editing on his latest Cesar dogfood commercial.

7. Empty Tripod and Cozy Cat – Andrea Lara 

This is one of my student’s workstations at home where he and his brother edit music videos. They also use this for a lot of school work and projects they do.

5. Sleep. Eat. Edit. Repeat. – Kelsey Shryer 

 I am one of three founding partners for Gentle-Force Artist Group. We are currently finishing up a TV pilot and will be shopping it to networks this fall. We work from home and I personally work from my bedroom…or bed sometimes. We have 5 huge dogs, 3 huge cats, and 3 horses. At least one is always hanging out with me editing-well as far as the cats and dogs go… After taking the picture I realized I looked like am bed ridden. I am not. I just eat, sleep, and breathe editing.

2. I’m Bored – Ed Wiles 

I’ve recently started making my own short films as a writer/director – and editor! The one in the photo is just about complete. Brandy gets a little bored even though we’d only just got back from a walk.

1. SunDog is the Boss – Stephan Allen 

The SunDog name was inspired by our Chihuahua (Timone). He loves to show off and have his belly rubbed. He is our trademark.
