  • Course description
    Learn the fundamentals of shooting and editing your own digital videos
    Ready to make digital videos? Editing film and video is about movement, choreography, the play of light, color, and graphics. And beyond all that, it's all about psychology.

    In this 6-lesson course, you'll learn the art and craft of editing videos from two award-winning filmmakers. The course explores techniques that can be applied in a range of non-linear editing programs, including Final Cut, Avid, and Premiere. But the main focus is not just on developing software skills—it's on exploring the magic behind video modification.

    Challenging projects including editing a commercial, an interview, a narrative scene, a music video, a video diary, and a text title sequence. Hands-on learning helps you explore how to apply time-honored principles of film editing using today's digital technology.

    Important: Students will need access to a digital video camera with a FireWire connection. Students will also need a non-linear editing program. The course includes full directions for Final Cut Express and some notes for Premiere Elements, but students can use a non-linear editing program of their choice (Avid, Final Cut Pro, Premiere Pro, iMovie, and so on). Students who do not use Final Cut Express will need to adjust for differences in interface and features.
