Inspiring techniques to stoke your editing process, with editor Will Ross.

Creative editing allows you to form stunning work with the barest of resources!

This workshop is designed for those who already have a general understanding of how to use Adobe Premiere, but would like to use it in more diverse creative ways.

This hands-on workshop will enable you to be more spontaneous in the editing room, generating experiments by implementing colour palette, saturation, image blending, contrast, rhythm, rapid cutting, graphic montage in novel and expressive ways.

You’ll be introduced to several examples of experimental editing and engage in group discussion about their effects and meanings.

After quickly conceptualizing and recording your own scene, you’ll cut your footage to test out various proposed theories and workflows, as well as your own editing ideas and improvisations.

By the end of this 3-day workshop, you’ll have shot and edited a short original work that demonstrates your editing experiments. Everyone’s scene will be shown in class for group discussion and reflection.

 

Prerequisite: Basic experience with Adobe Premiere or other non-linear editing system.
