FILM EDITING

This course provides you with a thorough education in editing skills in a professional filmmaking environment. 

Editing students are encouraged to consider their craft as part of the whole process of film and television production and not merely as the final stage, making them real collaborators, not just technicians.

The emphasis of the editing curriculum is firmly on storytelling and the relationship between the editor and director. 

You will learn to apply your craft to the demands of fiction, documentary and animation, creating visual narratives while working with sound, music and, where necessary special effects. 

Workshops with other industry professionals and students develop concepts of visual storytelling, mise-en-scene, storyboarding, sound design, music and scriptwriting.

Students at Empire Film Academy are trained to be Editors and not mere machine operators. 

Through hands-on practical training using softwares like Final Cut Pro, Adobe Premiere Pro and After Effects, they are taught the fundamental and aesthetic principles of editing for film and television.
