DM260b Narrative Group Project: Post-Production

Course Description

The main objective of this Filmmaking class is to edit together the narrative project. At the beginning of the course emphasis will be placed on organizing and logging each file. Subsequently, students will be encouraged to revisit their initial script and see if the structure an aesthetic approach to the film has changed or is still viable. Before actual editing begins the Instructor will give guidelines on how to organize media and structure a new sequence. The goal is to move beyond simple mechanical edits but to start thinking about structure, time manipulation, rhythm, pace and building tension through the editing process
