This course, open to all graduate students from across the University who have video footage for a documentary project, will allow students to utilize computer-driven digital editing stations and current non-linear editing software (Final Cut Pro) to edit a short video documentary. Editors will work on short assignments (5 to 15 minutes), with the option to complete a short documentary project begun in another course. Students learn how to organize large amounts of documentary footage, cut interviews, add B-roll, incorporate narration, tell a story visually, among other topics, while learning the principles of random access digital editing (theory of nonlinear editing, capturing video and audio, organizing and accessing rough footage, editing sync and non-sync material, assembling and trimming sequences, editing and mixing audio, adding effects, creating titles, color correction, and outputting work).
Prerequisite: Media Practices: Time-Based, Directing Documentary or instructor permission.
