Full Course Description:

In this studio-style class, students will take documentary material they have shot prior to the beginning of the semester and edit it.  Documentary approaches, strategies for storytelling, structural is-sues, and key aesthetic questions will be explored in depth with the goal of helping students define and develop their own editing style.  Students will learn how to organize material for editing, and to work in Premiere in the rough and fine cut stages of post production.  Advanced Premiere features like titling, sound editing, mixing and color correction will also be covered.  Particular attention will be paid to the advanced layering and compositing features that Premiere makes available.  Students are expected to bring material to work with in the class.

Permissions: Cleared after advisement with IMA Director and Program Coordinator.
