  • back-time music,

All these skills will make your editing experience easy and intensely creative. You can become a great filmmaker.

MAKE A MOVIE

As part of the course, you will edit a short film of your choice, using the techniques taught here. It will be critiqued by Andrew White.

WHAT ABOUT EQUIPMENT

Like our shooting course, we don't spend much time talking about equipment. We focus on teaching you techniques to tell a great story—whether it's a full-length documentary or a 30-second commercial, it's all about story telling.

Don’t expect to learn how to use your software with this course. You need to know the basics of that already.

Please watch the video. It will introduce you to the course, the role of the editor in the storytelling process, the equipment you will need, and how I will be teaching you.
