Dramatic Film Editing

This six-hour workshop will introduce the technical aspects of picture editing with established industry standards. Through discussions, demonstrations and exercises, participants will gain a better understanding from workflow to deliverables when working on dramatic films. Focus will be place on creating a project, preparing and ingesting media, rough cut, working with the director to create the narrative structure, fine cut, online editing, sound editing, colour grading, visual effects, graphics and mastering with technical specifications for broadcast and distribution. Learn the marketable skills of an editor, and how to navigate the industry with an industry professional. 

This is not a software based workshop. Participants should understand non-linear editing software basics. This course is recommended as a companion to the Directing Dramatic Film and Producing Dramatic Film workshops.
