In this class you will get a crash course in some of the most widely used artistic concepts in film and video editing, that will apply no matter what software you use. Learn about Walter Murch’s Rule of Six, Continuity Editing, Montage Theory, and other principles that will help you tell stories with style. This class is appropriate for beginning editors, those with experience who want to add some theoretical knowledge to their technical skills, as well as filmmakers who are not editors but want to better understand the storytelling possibilities of postproduction.
