This course is an overview of the entire postproduction and finishing process for students who have completed shooting a short film project. Class time is devoted to editing exercises, lectures, group discussions, screenings, and presentations by guest film professionals. Topics discussed and demonstrated include creating rhythm; dramatic arc and character emphasis in scenes; cutting on, after, and before movement; match cutting; symbolic and thematic editing; and A&B cutting for documentaries. The class also explores sound editing and design, color correction, screening formats for festivals, standard industry mastering options, and distribution. Prerequisite: Film 4 or permission of the instructor. Students must bring their own harddrive with complete film dailies to the first session ready to edit. This course was formerly called The Art of Editing: Finishing a Film. If you have taken that course, do not take this one; it is the same course.
Course Open to: Degree Students
