Film Editing Workshop
This workshop attempts to introduce newcomers to the concept of film editing as part of the final stage in producing a film.
Film editing is a powerful creative tool, enabling filmmakers the communication with an audience, through the language and grammar of cinema.
During this afternoon we will look at some examples from documentary films and fiction to illustrate how various film directors, together with their film editors communicate ideas, feelings and establish a connection between the world, be it real or imagined, and their own vision and personal experience of that world.
Moderator: Jaime A Estrada-Torres.
Jaime is a member of the British Guild of Film and TV Editors, and works as Head of Editing at the London Film School. He has vast experience in film and television, working in the United Kingdom for the last 32 years, on both documentary and fiction films.
