About the Class

Motion Picture Editors are storytellers, but unlike writers who use text, editors use visual images, dialogue, sound, special effects, and music to stir the audience’s emotions.

Editing for Cinematic Storytelling is an in-depth theoretical course that analyzes and deconstructs the elements of creatively manipulating visual images through various editing practices. Students will be asked to think critically about the “why’s” and “how’s” of the edit that shapes the final narrative.

  • A deep understanding of the art form of editing and the editor’s role and relationships in the filmmaking process.

  • The editorial process's impact on the success of the film, TV show, or any form of visual media.
  • Overviews of multiple editorial philosophies
