Video Editing Workshop

July 19, 2021

Learn the principles and techniques of video editing – the backbone of filmmaking. Whatever your interest or desired role in filmmaking, understanding editing is fundamental to your success. The editor is a detail-oriented storyteller, craftsperson, organizer, and technician. We often rediscover and sometimes reinvent our stories in the edit.

Through demonstrations and hands-on exercises, students will learn the post-production process, storytelling, and editing techniques. We will weave and layer moving images and sounds with Adobe Premiere and use the three-point editing method to construct scenes and stories from rough cut to completion.

Equipment Requirements: Free access to Adobe Premiere editing software is provided with enrollment. Students must have a computer that meets the minimum specifications required by Adobe Premiere Pro 2020. Footage will be provided for the editing exercises or students can work with their own material.


6 Sessions: 04/26-5/13, Mondays and Thursdays, 6–8pm, Online via Zoom

Taught by Michael Sheridan, filmmaker and educator, director of Community Supported Film and SheridanWorks.

By imposing new restrictions on the media and female actors, the Taliban have once again reaffirmed their misogynistic ideology, rights advocates have said.

Afghanistan’s Taliban rulers unveiled a new set of restrictions on Afghan media earlier this week, banning television channels from showing dramas and soap operas featuring women actors.
