What is the course about?
Most editing is done from the keyboard, using tools that enable the editor to fine-tune the rough cut. We will take a look at these techniques and how to best use them. As all editing is also about story telling we will look at core narrative principles that guide most story constructions. These include POV constructions, parallel techniques and screen directionality.

How will I be taught, and will there be any work outside the class?
Each week there will be a demonstration of a particular aspect of Premiere. This is then followed by an exercise, allowing for some individual tutorial support. Periodically there will be forum sessions were we will look at each other’s work to discuss different aspects of editing/ filmmaking in general and the post-production process. Asking questions and commenting is encouraged at all times. Handbooks, manuals and worksheets are available.
Are there any other costs? Is there anything I need to bring?
You will need to have access to the latest version of Adobe® Creative Cloud for Premiere Pro CC which is what will be used to teach this course.

Lily is a freelance film editor and consultant. Her main work over the past 10 years has been in helping people turn their dreams and visions into interesting films and successful artworks. She specialises in film editing, but also consults on all other aspects of film making and fine art. “To me, helping people find the stories the really want to tell and turn them into enjoyable and interesting films is uniquely rewarding and deeply fulfilling. I am particularly interested in enabling people’s own capacity, teaching them both practical skills (e.g. use of software and technical aspects of filmmaking) alongside conceptual underpinnings and critical engagement (version of visual literacy).” She has been teaching film and video related subjects ever since her own postgraduate student days. She is also an award-winning and internationally exhibited/collected artist.
