Digital Editing: Art&Technique

Spring 2021

Taught By: Jeremy Brooke

Section: A

CRN: 2420

Credits: 3

Affordable and professional desktop editing software has given all filmmakers an economical and time-efficient way to edit their films using the exact same tools as the pros. Creating transitions, filters, titles, layered audio, and multiple versions has never been simpler, but knowing the tools is not enough. An understanding of editing conventions and the aesthetics of montage, continuity, and pacing is equally important. In this workshop, students learn both. Through lectures, demonstrations, and hands-on exercises, the course offers a conceptual and technical introduction to postproduction and nonlinear editing. Students become acquainted with workflow and HD video formats, as well as the basic functionality of Avid Media Composer on Macintosh computers. Using profession footage, students learn techniques for organizing media, editing picture and sound, and outputting to various formats. This course is not intended for students completing a Film 4 project. Students must have their own Mac-formatted firewire harddrive.
