Course aim

To develop existing skills in digital editing and expand on knowledge of the underlying principles of editing.

Do I need any particular skills or experience?

  • Previous experience of digital video editing at a basic level is essential (eg. Windows Moviemaker, I Movie, Premiere) as this is an intermediate level course. Please contact the WEA if unsure and the course tutor will advise you.

By the end of the course I should be able to:

  • Complete a paper edit
  • Assemble a rough cut
  • Adjust sound levels
  • Add transitions
  • Export a film into a digital file

How will I be taught?

  • The WEA tutor will use a range of different teaching and learning methods and encourage you and the group to be actively involved in your learning
  • You may be asked to undertake additional work in your own time to support your learning
  • You will also receive information and links to relevant media to watch about the theoretical side of editing

What kind of feedback can I expect?

  • A range of informal activities will be used by the tutor to see what you are learning which may include quizzes, question and answer, small projects and discussion
  • You will have opportunities to discuss your progress with your tutor
  • You will be encouraged to share your work with the group and discuss your learning
  • You will be encouraged to consider other students work and give your opinions and suggestions
  • A file of work will be kept which will help to record your progress
  • We use a variety of assessment methods to support progress. One to one and small group peer assessment to help students get constructive criticism and perspective on their work

What else do I need to know?

  • A selection of materials and basic equipment will be provided but you are welcome to bring additional materials with you
  • It would be helpful if you had access to the internet (Mobile phone, tablet or computer at home or through a library etc.)
  • We have a range of machines to edit on although students also like to bring their own laptops to edit on.

Pre-course work, reading and information sources

  • Ideally students bring unedited clips on a hard drive. Alernatively they could shoot some footage on a mobile phone or other basic camera for homework in the first week.
