What is film editing?

Film editing is an art that has the ability to make or break a film. It can be made very apparent or completely invisible to viewers, depending on the style and skill of the editor. An editor requires a firm grasp of both aesthetic and technical knowledge since they are the first ones to interact with the footage and they work closely with the director. The following chapters will take you through the origins of this art form and the history behind it, the step by step process an editor undertakes using the established grammar of film editing and digital editing software as well as the specialised techniques used in editing various kinds of scenes and films.

Course Objectives

In this course, you will learn about the different styles of screenplay-writing, how to use your words to convey emotions, develop the characters so the audience can relate to it etc. The course aims at helping you discover your own style of writing and find your voice. Through the 10-part syllabus mentioned below, we’ll help you hone your writing skills and intuition for human emotions while in the process teaching you to think creatively.

Syllabus

A good film is only as good as its story. At WWI Virtual Academy, you will get a chance to learn what exactly a screenplay writer does, and how scripts are written, from the best in the industry. Here you will get exposure to various script-writing styles. Through creative use of words, you will be able to convey the emotion of a character and tell a story.
