Cambridge TV: Editing skills masterclass – 22nd Aug

We are offering a one day masterclass learning narrative video editing skills. It’s aimed at people with a basic working knowledge of any editing software.

TV editors all use a similar approach to finding the best the story in their footage and telling it in the most engaging way. In this course we will outline the workflow of a professional TV editor and give you the skills to capture online audiences with your story.

We’ll share professional techniques such as:

  • Crystalising the point and trimming off the fat.
  • Sifting the footage to create a first “radio edit”.
  • Telling a visual story with b-roll.
  • How to bring your audience in by building characters, not just talking heads.
  • Dialogue editing techniques to make your contributors tell their own story compellingly.
  • Mastering structure, pace and tone.
  • How best to log footage so you don’t miss the best material.
  • Making the best of unpromising footage.
  • How to analyse an edit.

Attendees will be provided with computers running a choice of Adobe Premiere or Final Cut Pro. If you use a different app, you can bring your own editing system.

For people who wish to learn editing software from scratch, courses in Adobe Premiere and Apple Final Cut Pro are available.

This training day will run from 9.30am to 5.30pm and costs £120.
