At its core, editing is learning how to make decisions that produce the most effective result for the appeal of the story. Your editing decisions entice the viewer to become captivated and stay engaged in the story as much as the cinematography does.
The Out of Order Tour teaches you how to assemble each moment in your films by integrating storytelling theory with specific, practical editing techniques. Designed for the beginner and intermediate filmmaker, this workshop shows you how to make decisions about where the pieces go instead of simply how to move them into place.
The seminar begins with an intensive overview of the entire editing process. Students will learn how to organize and log footage while utilizing workflow techniques to create the narrative base.
