The first week focuses on where editing started and how it applies to anything from a :30 commercial to a 10 minute short to a 4 hour director’s cut of an epic film. From there practical editing begins on how to edit a simple scene and goes into finishing with music, titles, and effects. The class has become very interactive with new video demonstrations and examples, as well as informative clips on how the class is applied in practical use.
