By examining different editing styles, this course covers the elements of storytelling, performance, pace, emotion, action, continuity, and time manipulation. Instruction includes lectures, discussion, and viewing exercises. You also learn to select the most appropriate editing systems and technology by evaluating the limitations of budgets and time.
