Video Editing: Art & Artifice

Summer 2014 quarter (Session II)

Taught by

Video editing is both art and science.  Mastering the tools is (relatively) easy- the art is more difficult.  We will dissect films from all genres and time periods in an attempt to understand how editing has become what it is today.  We will take a look at both halves of the editing equation, learning the tools, the technique, and the art of editing, sound editing, color correcting, compositing, and all of the multiple disciplines today's editor is expected to know.
