You can have an eye for framing a shot, nail camera movement, capture lighting... but all cinematographers know it’s a show-stopper if you don’t have good editing.
“Inside the Cutting Room” workshop offers hands-on interaction with editing software combined with in-depth teaching on the psychology and application of editing in cinematography. Editing is a powerful tool to tell stories, evokes emotion and is a vital skill to make stories effective.
The weekend workshop is designed to take the mystique out the how’s and why’s of editing. Get on the path to mastery over a tool that gives you creative control, balance, and a final product that captures what you envisioned for your piece.
