Editing is a state of mind. The Editor often wields the power and ability to breathe life into a piece of motion work, or to kill it off. When it comes to video editing, one rule does not fit all. The best sign of an Editor - his work goes unnoticed. As Editor, You should get lost in whatever it was that a director has had for the piece, and forget about the editing. Seamless narrative storytelling is the aim, whether it’s a wedding, a graduation, a BTS, a documentary or a motion picture, the idea is not to jar the audience out of their engagement with the piece.

The Creative Editing Program goes way beyond basic editing theory. Using popular video editing software like iMovie, Final Cut Pro X, Premiere Pro, and Media Composer, students will learn hundreds of structural, journalistic and creative techniques used in documentary and shorts, from the fundamentals to the highly advanced. Combined knowledge of narrative scene editing and documentary editing will help you make a movie, short film, or a documentary.
