Beyond Basic: The Video Edit that Stands Out
Limited Capacity seats available

Are you familiar with the basics of video editing and want to dig deeper into more creative edits? In this course, Catherine will show you, piece by piece, how she edits her videos in Final Cut Pro X. Not only will she break down the edit of her videos, she will explain why she chooses to edit it the way that she does. It isn't just important to learn how to add a cool effect, but to have reason, and justify the edit in order to be a better storyteller. Catherine will go over opening sequences that have visual impact, transitions, audio and sound effects to enhance your film, and touch on color grading as well. Catherine will take you through one of her previously completed films and dissect it so that you can see exactly how she edited it, as well as edit a 1 minute film from start to finish (Catherine will have clips filmed prior to class). You will not only walk away with a better understanding of how to cut together a creative video edit, but how to use those creative edits to become better storytellers within your own films.

Learning Objectives:

- Learn how to edit a film from start to finish in Final Cut Pro X
- Learn how, when and *why* to use advanced transitions between clips
- Learn the basics of color grading films
- Learn how to match audio with your clips, and how to add sound effects to enhance your storytelling
