Credits: 3

This class will focus on the creative and technical processes involved in digital video postproduction. This course will use computer-driven digital editing stations and current industry standard non-linear professional editing software (Adobe Premiere or Avid Media Composer) to edit a short video (fiction, documentary, experimental, music video, etc.). Editors will work on short assignments (5 to 15 minutes), with the option to complete a short video or film project begun in another course, or to start from scratch on a new digital video project. Students learn how to organize large amounts of footage, assemble a narrative scene, cut interviews, incorporate voice overs, tell a story visually, among other topics, while learning the principles of random access digital editing (theory of nonlinear editing, capturing video and audio, transcoding digital files, organizing and accessing rough footage, editing sync and non-sync material, assembling and trimming sequences, editing and mixing audio, adding effects, creating titles, color correction, and outputting work).

This course is open only to Media Studies graduate students. Non-Media Studies majors and undergraduate Juniors and Seniors with permission from the instructor, as well as BA/MA Media studies students should email mediastudiesadvising@newschool.edu for access.
