The Fly High Animation trains students on Film Editing Training with Avid's Media Composer software. Media Composer is the leading digital editing software in the industry in the areas of feature length films, television and documentaries. Editors grip one of the most precarious roles in the filmmaking industry. Filmmakers depend on an editor’s storytelling and digital editing skills to shape the description of their story in post-production and to sophisticate their films. Editors are not exclusively limited to the film industry; they work in many areas of media, including news, documentaries, television, and web series.
The Fly High Animation 4-Week Digital Editing Workshops and 12-Week Evening Digital Editing Workshops provide students with hands-on instruction in editing theory, techniques and the fundamentals of digital editing. Students achieve hands-on practice by editing several projects with footage provided to them in class. They also learn various theoretical concepts of editing and how to practically apply those theories. Your Film Editing Department aims to give every student on the MA Film making course a detailed understanding of the aesthetics and technical principles of the craft.
The basic foundation of Editing is taught to all MA film making students through practical exercises, which reflect the current professional industry standard for 16 mm, 35 mm and HD workflows and are founded on the principle of film making as an art and a profession. Great emphasis is given to visual storytelling and in the use of all elements of story, performance, cinematography, frame composition, sound, and design to serve the narrative and the director’s vision. The professional relationship with the director is an essential part of their work and it is developed from the beginning, through the Editor’s participation to the project at the development stage. In the part of film editing training students grow initiative, discipline and communication as the essential values in order to successfully collaborate with other departments and technicians involved in the making of a film.
If shooting is like generating the raw material of a film, the edit table is where the film finds its final processed & packaged form. The skill of editing, no longer an invisible skill as it used to be, is maybe the very essence of Film Making. The Editor is the one who makes the final decisions about what needs to be seen and heard in a film, while also controlling its rhythm & pace. The present trend is the non-linear editing system that digitizes and stores footage onto computer hard disk drives. New software allows this video and audio information to be viewed, modified, and eventually played back in real time from the system, without changing the original rushes. The tools now-a-days is such that it allows the Editor to directly broadcast his or her work in full resolution from a workstation or print it to celluloid, videotape or hard disk. Students at Fly High Animation are trained to be Editors and not mere machine operators. Through hands-on practical training using software’s like FCP, Adobe Premier Pro and After Effects, they are taught the fundamental and aesthetic principles of editing for film and television.
