MPFV314 Advanced Editing 3 cr.
This course assumes that students come to it with
technical skill at Avid and other non-linear
editing systems and moves instead into conceptual
and aesthetic aspects of motion-picture editing,
examining how an editor creates a sense of time,
space, tone, and rhythm. We look at both
short-form and long-form work in the documentary,
fiction, and experimental traditions. Sound/image
relationships, including continuity and
discontinuity, and non-traditional approaches are
all examined through short editing assignments.
In addition, there is time for critique of your
own works-in-progress, as well as a term-long
group assignment to edit a documentary feature
out of materials provided by the instructor.
Prerequisites: MPFV220 or by permission of instructor
