In the course we will learn to work with the materials that films are made of. We will play and experiment with different approaches and techniques to achieve meaningful sequences. We will watch examples from various types of films, shoot and record raw footage of our own, and use existing raw footage (after all the world is full of it, it’ll be a waste not to). Premier editing software, which we will learn, will serve as our laboratory for exploring the endless possibilities of the screen based medium.
Throughout the course, we will experience how the editing process can surprise us and lead us to find new ideas.
