Offered: July 6-17, 2020, Monday – Friday, 9am-3pm
Successful editing is core to making good movies and the editing process actually begins before the first shot is taken. Our new online hands-on digital editing course for teens offers a fun and interesting peek into how films are constructed, how editing plays a role as one of the “hidden” aspects of filmmaking, and the tools and strategies editors use to bring stories to life. This class focuses on learning hands-on digital editing by using an industry-standard editing program such as Adobe Premiere or DaVinci Resolve (both available for free).
Students will gain insight into the fundamental building blocks of filmmaking by learning about creating pacing, rhythm, and shaping the story and looking at a wide range of movie styles. The course is taught by Vaun Raymond, an established Seattle film producer, director, and editor and long-time educator who teaches in Seattle Film Institute’s undergraduate and graduate film programs. Please note that the class runs 10:00AM-2:00pm Pacific Time. The first two hours of the day focus on instruction and the next two hours provide time for collaborative work sessions with instructor support. Students must have access to a computer that can run Adobe Premiere or DaVinci Resolve. College credit is available for this course.
