Did you teach yourself Premier Pro?

Did your best with Avid, but still feel that you are missing out on the craft of editing?

This consistently sell-out course is for those who came to editing from a non-traditional route and are keen to learn the craft of editing.

Taking a number of examples from both drama and documentary, this course will introduce you to the concepts of editing from grammar to storytelling, so that you'll come to see editing as a key to the entire process of filmmaking, not just as what happens in the final stage.

To gain practical knowledge of editing in various genres through practical exercises

Through a series of editing exercises, viewings and discussions this course will introduce you to the concepts of:
Narrative storytelling
Film grammar
Narration/Commentary
Use of music
Building mood in a sequence
