FLM 391

Intermediate Editing (Fall)

Studio, 3 Credit Hours

Provides further discussion and practice in the craft of editing and the role of the editor in the filmmaking process. The course includes at least four diverse editing projects and 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. This course looks at preparation for turnover to MX & FX, working with the composer and his editor, and assisting the director in supervising the final mix. In addition, there will be time given to an examination of titling (as it is done both inside and outside the cutting room), and film finishing. Finally, a practice in “group editing”, that is, two or three editors assigned to a single project. (FLM 291)
