Workshop Registration

Editing on Film

NOTE: This workshop is in person. It is recommended that participants wear a mask while on the premises.

Learn the operations and edit your next (or first) motion picture film with LIFT's 2020 manufactured Steenbeck film editorial machine. This workshop is geared towards those interested in the traditional analogue art of filmmaking and is intended to build the foundational knowledge of working with celluloid. Participants will have an overview of film editing, discuss the tools and expendables for prepping a print, explore operations and setup for traditional 16mm, S16mm and 35mm formats. 

In addition, participants will learn to use Steenbeck's digital film-to-video transfer component working with digital interface (720p for 16/S16mm and 576i for 35mm) and gain hand-on practice on the system.

Topics will include: Image projection, sound sync, splicing, cutting, sorting, creating a workprint, preparing for neg cutting, and creating final prints.

Participants are welcome to bring their own film footage to practice for this combination lecture and hands-on class.
