This workshop is for those who have completed the Film Production module and for experienced film directors, editors, and producers who want to develop greater sensitivity and skill in editing and shaping dramatic material. The course explores the creative process of editing with guidance and critique by a master editor. Students explore the use of timing and continuity, the structure of scenes, and the aesthetics of cinematic storytelling in crafting dramatic stories. Students work as part of a creative team while editing, re-editing and experimenting with selected scenes. Lectures cover editing room procedures and techniques for creating drama, suspense and heightened emotional pacing in comedy, romance and suspense films. Additionally, students learn about an editor's relationship with the director and how each contributes to shaping the story.
