MDST 3700 - Post-Production

In this practical “hands on” course, students will learn how to cut together found footage and footage they create using advanced editing software. Students will learn how the editor has a profound and significant influence on the overall tone and meaning of a film through the editing process. Students will strengthen their cinematic voice as they learn about and how to work with different kinds of conventional cuts, such as reverse cuts, POV, reactions, inserts, and jump cuts. The students will also learn how and when to employ other types of transitions such as dissolves, fades, and superimpositions. In addition, students will learn how to synchronize sound, add musical tracks, and create sound effects.
