This workshop is for those who have completed the Eight-week Film Production module as part of the Certificate in Collaborative Filmmaking. Students begin this module with a rough cut of their final project. Through structured lecture time and substantial independent lab time, students develop a greater sensitivity and skill in editing and shaping dramatic material. The course explores the creative process of editing with guidance and critique by a master editor.
Students explore the use of timing and continuity, the structure of scenes, and the aesthetics of cinematic storytelling in crafting their stories. Students work as part of a creative team while editing and experimenting with selected scenes. Lectures cover editing room procedures and techniques for creating drama, suspense and heightened emotional response, coupled with exploring advanced techniques in After Effects and DaVinci Resolve as necessary for the final cut.
