Video editing is rife with tedious tasks—perhaps none more so than editing down filler words ("umms, uhhs") that inevitably show up in any interview, talking head video, or voice over. The problem is you can't leave filler words or awkward pauses in your video: they add unnecessary length, hurt engagement (especially on social media), and make you look unprofessional.
