FLM 391

Intermediate Editing

Studio, 3 Credit Hours

The second of three courses in motion picture editing. Provides further discussion and practice in the craft of editing and the role of the editor in the filmmaking process. The class will include at least four diverse editing projects. Provides extensive practice in editorial techniques, using mostly the Avid editing system. Closely examines the art of sound effects and music editing as it occurs in the picture’s cutting room, the sound designer’s studio, and the music editing facility. Looks at preparation for turnover to MX & FX, working with the composer and his editor, and assisting the director in supervision the final mix. In addition, there will be time given to an examination of the basic tools of After Effects, titling (as it is done both inside and outside the cutting room), and film finishing. Finally, there will be practice in “group editing”, that is, two or three editors assigned to a single project. (FLM 291)
