6 evening sessions
Date: Wednesdays 7 November to 12 December 2012
Times: 6:30pm - 9:30pm
Instructor: Claudia Tomaz
This hands-on creative and technical 6-session course uses Final Cut Pro 7 to explore the Art and Craft of Editing. This is a beginner’s class but it is designed to give you the editing skills and tools for professional use. A basic knowledge of Mac computers is recommended.
Editing exercises are the core of the course and will take place each session; this will allow you to be creative while exploring editing and learn FCP. In the first 2 classes, exercises use excerpts of films (documentary and fiction) to explore editing and put you at ease with the software; in the following classes (4 sessions) each participant creates/edits a short film out of given footage, from beginning to end.
Different styles and editing techniques will be discussed through, showing examples of editing sequences in feature films and documentaries, plus interviews with editors and filmmakers.
FCP topics include: basic setup, settings, formats and file management; capturing and importing video and audio; various editing and trimming techniques; sound editing, sync sound with image and sound-design; create title sequences and subtitles; exporting to DVD and the internet.
