This is an intensive course on the theory and practices of editing that incorporates digital post-production using Final Cut Pro software. In this course, students review the history of filmmaking, analyzing different editing practices, including editing action sequences, comedy, documentaries and experimental work. Through media analysis, we study the use of editing as a filmmaking tool to shape meaning and influence audiences. A series of hands-on exercises are designed to make the students familiar with editing processes such as maintaining continuity, achieving smoothness, and controlling the timing, as well as understanding the connotation of different editing techniques in affecting the meaning of a sequence.
