This class will focus on the basics of movie editing. Students will learn about the history of film editing, and splice together 8mm and 16mm film and watch their final product on a projector. Then we will be focusing on modern, digital editing where students will be using tools from a variety of different editing software. They will become familiar with Final Cut Pro, Adobe Premiere Pro, and After Effects. Students will bring in videos of their own and will apply editing skills and techniques as instructed in class.
