Could you help me with a build!

Hello, guys!. I'm a movie director and I'm about to start my new project. It's a new thriller movie. The problem is, I'm also the editor of the movie. I mainly use Adobe After Effects for professional movie editing, but I need a new rig in order to support it because my old one is not enough. Also, I'm fairly good at technology so I came up with my own build, right here: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/P2nQt6 . Is that a good build considering that I'm working with a dual-monitor system for editing and the movie is shot in 4.7k, and kinda looks like this maybe even better: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7-VE4UHb7FU . If not, what would you guys recommend? And if there's additional info you think I need to know, please share it with me!. Thank you very much in advance! :)

For a full-fledged Professional Editor I could recommend the Professional's Choice -- a dual-xeon intel c612-based build i the price range of 3-4K would be best.. but I think the quad-channel X99 5930K would suffice & more

I vote this over the op list. CPU will be far better for the needs. But you'll likely need more storage so I'd take the 4tb black drive and put it with this.
