Editing and Post-Production Tools
Partnership with DukeCreate & Cinematic Arts
The Cinematic Arts Filmcraft Workshop Series
The Cinematic Arts Filmcraft Workshop Series is designed to give students the opportunity to develop hard skills in practical areas of filmmaking. It includes topics in cinematography, editing, post-production, and sound. It is aimed at filmmakers looking to advance their practice, as well as those interested in a first look at the techniques and technology of film.
The Fall 2020 Filmcraft Workshops are streamed from the Cinematic Arts Film Studio. Please join us Thursdays in September and October for live demonstrations, discussion, and Q&A.
Camera Systems and Camera Operation
This workshop begins with the filming of a short scene, and ends, if fortune smiles, with the completed edit, sound mix, color grade, and delivery of the scene.
This session will completely fail to teach students how to edit, mix, grade, and deliver their film, unreasonable goals for two and a half hours. But attendees will learn in detail what steps are required between wrapping a film and delivering it for screening and distribution, how to organize that work, applicable industry standard tools and their more accessible substitutions, and workflow options for different film genres and forms. It will also address how these workflows change with scope, from solo filmmaking to big-budget, fully produced work.
This workshop will cover the following:
- Post-production workflow
- Editing tools and techniques
- Sound editing, mixing, and design
- Color grading
- Finishing, authoring, and delivery
