This course will examine the visual storytelling techniques and tools of video editing. Students will dissect editing styles, experiment with video projects, and learn terms and tricks. The overall pacing of scenes and sequences will be discussed, as well as the importance of drawing visual and timing cues from the story itself. Going beyond the basics of storage, timelines, shot choices, inserts, montage, series of shots, transitions and fades, this course will examine how to draw an audience in and make them identify with the characters’ perspectives for the sake of the overall scene and story arc.
