Primary Instructor:

With a focus on craft and theory, this class will explore editing as the third and final "authoring" of a motion picture. With an emphasis on storytelling over software and technique over technology, this class will start by considering the power of the "cut" and progress into more advanced editing methods. In addition to considering image editing, we will also cover sound editing and sweetening as well as an introduction to basic color correction through a series of demos and hands-on assignments.
