This course teaches students fluency in the visual language of fiction film editing at a beginner level. The focus of the class is developing the conceptual and technical skills needed to edit simple fiction film projects using Adobe Premiere. This includes: understanding the formal and aesthetic foundation of film editing (with an in-depth exploration of foundational editing grammar and vocabulary), learning the rhetorical strategies of editing and how it effects storytelling, as well as the technical skills needed to create, organize, draft, and complete the editing of short fiction films projects. Technical topics covered include: asset and project management, correct editing workflows from assemble cuts to fine cuts, working with basic sound editing, title/text design, as well as exporting. However, the major part of the course will be spent on storytelling techniques and how it relates to editing. The class consists of a mixture of lectures and analysis workshops, as well as weekly in-class editing exercises.
