This 4-day intensive course is designed as a basic primer in the craft of professional editing for news and documentary, commercial spots, and scripted narrative films using Avid Media Composer, the non-linear film/video editing application used in most movie and television productions. The class covers essential tools necessary to begin a basic project, assemble a story, and output a project to multiple platforms. Through lectures, demonstrations, and hands-on exercises using existing professional projects, students gain foundational skills that include: organizing and setting up a project; managing media; executing 3-point editing; constructing and reworking a scene; syncing editing and trimming dialogue; mixing music and sound effects; creating titles and transitions. Familiarity with Macintosh computer functions is required. Bring a firewire drive to the first session.
