In these Film Editing Courses and workshops, you will learn the fundamental concepts and techniques of editing while getting trained on the latest video editing software tools. Designed by some of India’s finest editors, this course will provide a secure foundation upon which you can build a successful career.
Editing is described as an art, the only art that is unique to film, separating filmmaking from other art forms that preceded it. Editing is often referred to as the “invisible art” because when it is well-practiced, the viewer can become so engaged that he or she is not aware of the editor’s work.
On its most fundamental level, film editing is the art, technique and practice of assembling shots into a coherent sequence. An editor must creatively work with the layers of images, story, dialogue, music, pacing, as well as the actors’ performances to effectively “re-imagine” and even rewrite the film to craft a cohesive whole.
The advent of affordable video editing software becoming available on personal computers has led to a dramatic shift in the editing industry. Now any individual with a good computer setup and adequate training can start an Editing Studio from home.
Although, where most newcomers go wrong is in believing that the software is the be-all-end-all of the film editing profession and end up spending all their energy on software classes and online tutorials. This is a false notion which has led to many people wasting precious time and money, and eventually giving up on their dream.
To clarify this, lets look at another creative profession:
When we see a great painting or a photograph, do we praise the creativity of a brush or the eye of a visionary camera? No, we applaud the Painter and the Photographer who are operating and creating works of art with these tools. Similarly, we have to understand that the software is a tool for an Editor express his/her creativity; and achieving this understanding is one of the core objectives of our film editing course.
This is not to say that learning software is not necessary, in fact it very much is; but understanding what you want and can achieve through it is of paramount importance.
As new editors we must first understand what impact a moving image or movie can have on the viewer and how that impact can be manipulated through editing. The rest will follow suit.
In these film editing course we will not only be covering all the important aspects of editing, but also work with each individual and enable you to become responsible, innovative, and creative film editors.
