FMSA 201: Editing I

Editing I students are introduced to the core practices and techniques used in digital media editing. Using current editing software applications and associated equipment, both the technical and aesthetic principles of post production are explored. Students learn to 'read' an edit and develop an understanding of the critical and artistic role of editing in content development. Fundamental concepts in critical, aesthetic, and historical aspects of editing are introduced. Through workshops, exercises, and assignments, students learn media management, project workflow and editing approaches that enable effective evolutions of a short film from rough cut through to fine cut. Students experience both collaborative and individual approaches to begin developing an editing practice that is both technically proficient and critically informed.
