Course Introduction

There are three key events in the life of a film: the script, the shoot, and the edit. Editing is where it all comes together, where meaning is created through cutting sound and picture. This is the moment when the story is finally told.

While editing is at the heart of this course, you’ll also specialise in at least one other craft: visual effects, colour grading, or shoot'and'edit.

These are crafts of extraordinary power and nuance. Through them you can inform and enlighten, and you can change people’s minds. You can arouse great emotion, and you can create immersive fantasy worlds.

You will develop these skills through workshops, through making, and through giving and taking feedback. At the same time, you will acquire skills in post technology and media management which form the backbone of your craft. And throughout your learning journey you will come to see your practice within the context of wider social, cultural and aesthetic formations.
