Go deeper into the art and techniques of editing with a master editor.

Once the shooting is over, the editing room delivers revelations of every variety. Whatever the creative vision that has steered the project this far, the editor and director must now react to what has been shot and explore how to heighten what works and transcend what doesn’t. All with the goal of delivering a seamless and powerful storytelling experience from beginning to end.

This workshop is for experienced filmmakers, directors, editors, and producers who want to develop greater sensitivity and skill in editing and shaping scenes and sequences that land with impact. Explore the creative process of editing with the guidance and critique of this master film editor.  Deepen your understanding of scene dynamics, timing and continuity, and the aesthetics of cinematic storytelling.

Lectures and case studies will allow the group to examine relevant dynamics and challenges. Participants will edit, re-edit, and experiment with selected scenes. We will explore techniques for heightening tension, performance, and pacing in both comedy and dramatic films. The class will also consider the nuances of an editor’s relationship with the director and how each contributes to shaping the film in this crucial phase.

Editing workshop

In addition to working with provided footage, students are encouraged to bring an edited sequence, a film, a professional reel, or a rough cut of a current project.  Experience with a non-linear editing software (e.g. Adobe Premiere Pro, Final Cut Pro, Avid Media Composer) is required.

Students will also have the opportunity to discuss editing and post-production job opportunities in today’s industry and get insight from the instructor on their experiences and professional career path.

By the end of the week, your vision of editing will be transformed.
