Editing for Film and Video Art

when 30 August 2021 - 3 September 2021
language English
duration 1 week
fee EUR 450

This workshop examines how filmmakers and video artists can use editing to create and clarify the meaning of the content. The participants will consider the basic continuity editing concepts and have time to address their interests. As these editing concepts are relevant for both narrative and experimental films, the course shows examples from a range of films to explore some of the many options filmmakers have at their disposal.

At the beginning of each day, the students will watch videos that illustrate various editing concepts. After the introductory discussion, they will receive an assignment, which puts these ideas to immediate use. Depending on the assignment, the participants will work alone or in small groups to conceive, shoot, and edit their videos. As these ideas and techniques are relevant to all types of film, each assignment will be open enough so that the students can complete them according to their artistic interests, whether as short narratives, abstract experiments, or something in between. At the end of each session, the students will reconvene to watch and talk about the new videos.
