Film Editing Course

This course is suitable for people who have a reasonable grasp of digital technology, computers and editing software. Being able to use Photoshop or similar image editing software is a help although not vital. The course is particularly suited to advanced digital photographers or videographers who would like to be able to edit their own video footage.

Sean Corcoran from The Art Hand has the following to say; “I love working with professional editors on funded film projects but I have a few artistic pieces I am putting together at the moment that have no financial backing. I’m looking forward to doing this course myself so that I can get these films out while keeping the costs down by editing them myself. Film editing is not the kind of thing that can be self-taught effectively”.
