With a combination of classroom style teaching and practical work, you will learn how to craft a narrative using the core elements of story, rhythm and pace and crucially, how to build a relationship with the viewer by anticipating their thoughts and reactions.

Previous course participants have said:
'The course was a fantastic experience, which I highly recommend to anyone looking to pursue a career in editing. The tutors were first class, they offered advice, provided constructive feedback and encouraged us to experiment with new ideas through the course. Brilliant!'
Devised by tutor Will Oswald, the first two days of the course will be spent analysing scenes from well-known tv series on a cut by cut basis, examining the theory that lies behind each cut and the impact they have on the narrative. The third and fourth days of the course will then be a practical exercise when students will be given the rushes of a Sherlock scene to cut by themselves while in the NFTS classroom. On the final day, the group will review their work with Will who will feed back on each scene.
This one week course is for those who are familiar with using Avid Media Composer but are looking to build their skills and confidence in editing drama.
