WSQ Make Creative Editing Decisions for Moving Images

SSG Course Ref No.: CRS-Q-0018214-CI / Funding Validity Period: 21 Nov 2016 - 31 Oct 2019


Understand the art of creative thinking in editing to better fulfil the role of a video or film editor.



What happens after you learn the skills of using non-linear editing software? The next step is to understand what makes a good cut. The transition from being a good editor to a great editor lies in noticing the details and being able to think creatively about how to give the final product a polished finish.

This unit will enable participants to develop a better understanding in the role of a video or film editor. As the title of the course suggests, it has a strong emphasis on the art of creative thinking in editing. It will also benefit directors and producers who work closely with creative editors to churn out projects with a common objective.
