Through weekly assignments and four larger projects, they gain a thorough understanding of narrative editing techniques, color correction, audio post-production and the requisite software. The class covers the art of post-production and how post-production affects narrative function in moving picture media (concentrating on cinema, but looking as well at music videos and television). Assignments include editing a short film, color correction, and sound editing/mixing, among others. Strongly suggested for students who wish to be considered for the editing and postproduction positions in MACS 480/481. Requires MACS 260 as prerequisite.
