What you'll learn in this photo editing class:

How can you assemble footage in a way that your audience will understand and respond to? Where do you start a cut, and where should a clip end? Whether you’re new to editing or have been at it for a while, you might not know certain lingo or the reasons why some edits work to achieve your narrative objective while others fall short. 

Editing Techniques illustrates how you, as an editor, can convey the continuity, comprehension, and emotion of your choosing in the scenes you create.

This is a Post-Production workshop at the Extensions level.

Topics include:

  • Takes, Scenes, and Sequences
  • The Perception of the Viewer
  • Shot Selection
  • Establishing/Reestablishing Shots
  • Shot/Reverse Shot
  • Matching
