Gael Chandler: Film Editing

Get an incisive look at the different types of cuts that editors make, and how they affect the story and audience.

Explore scenes from TV shows and movies and learn how editing shapes plot, pace, character, and structure.  Delve into the impact visual effects, sound, and music editing have on a film.  This class covers the three phases of the editing process, comparing traditional Hollywood-style linear "invisible" editing with modern, MTV-style non-linear, often unabashedly "visible" editing.

Sessions: 4

Dates: Wednesdays, September 3, 10, 17, 24 (6 - 9 PM)
