How does the editing of images and sound reveal the complexity of an experience? Through editing we will learn to manipulate time, space, sound and emotions to create a subjective experience we can share with the viewers. In this course you will work to develop skills in the craft of editing. This is a hands-on course, emphasizing non-linear editing using Premiere Pro CC. In addition to the technical aspects of editing, we will study the art and theory of the craft through screenings of a variety of works. We will explore various conventions and expressions in narrative, documentary and experimental forms. Over the course of the semester, you will begin to define your role as an editor, understand editing as a potential profession, and discover how it enriches your overall process as a storyteller.
At the conclusion of this course students should be able to:
