What is Editing?

Film editing is all about intuition. Intuition to know how the characters will portray their emotions and how the scene is going to affect the audience. A good film editor knows exactly how hours and hours of raw footage should be cut and joined to create a complete story. He/she doesn’t just need to be well-versed in various editing software but also be a good storyteller. Here at Virtual Academy, we focus on both aspects of editing.

Course Objectives

The Certificate Program in Editing at Virtual Academy covers everything you need to know about editing – from its history to working on actual videos. Through video-based classes and masterclass lessons from the experts, you’ll learn about different types of cuts, editing dialogue sequences, scene construction theory and about different software used for it. By the end of the course, you won’t just know all about editing but will also be able to edit your own footage.

Syllabus

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 specialized techniques used in editing various kinds of scenes and films.

Lesson 1

This introductory chapter will introduce you to the concept of editing and how it developed over years of experimentation. You will also be taken through a practical overview of the process and learn the fundamental ways in which you can transition between two shots.

Lesson 2

Basic Shot Types and The Grammar of Film

It is essential to understand the kind of material an editor gets to work with and also how this material can be manipulated, keeping in mind the techniques and grammar that have been developed over years of experimentation. This chapter will teach you how to tell your stories effectively and clearly through your edit.

Lesson 3

Software training

Film editing has become widely accessible through digitization. The process has become much simpler, but the technical expertise required remains the same. An artist cannot work without a thorough understanding and mastery of his or her tools. You will be trained in three of the film industry’s most used editing softwares – Adobe Premiere Pro, Avid Media Composer and DaVinci Resolve.

Lesson 4

Types of Cuts, Why and When to Cut and Editing Dialogue/Action Scenes

The aesthetics of a good edit is something that you will develop over time by practicing the specialized techniques covered in this chapter. Knowing when, how and if to cut at a particular moment is essential. Different kinds of scenes also require specific techniques to be used which will be covered.

Lesson 5

Editing Commercials, Non-Fiction and Trailers
