MPFV314 Advanced Editing 3cr.


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.
