Take 2 – Film Editing: Making an Invisible Art Visible

March 30th, 2015

I’m repeating the class I taught at the Marin Community Center for Media in downtown San Rafael, CA this spring. I’m looking forward to another great group of students.

The feedback from the last class was strongly positive and helpful, I’m glad to report. As a result, I’ve expanded the course from four sessions to five. This will allow more time for documentary and re-viewing scenes that superbly illustrate different editing genres and types of cuts. I’ve also expanded the documentary section and added animation and book trailers, and increased the resources and handouts.

Learn more and sign up for the class here.

Here’s a promo the Media Center made for the class edited by  Alejandro Palacios, Communications & Development Manager.

I’m excited once again to show scenes and discuss the current state of editing and some of my favorite subjects: What does an editor contribute? Why does an editor make a cut? How important are sound and music? How has MTV affected cutting styles? What does academic research show about the evolution of editing?

Here’s the info:
