Documentary editors distill dozens – sometimes hundreds – of hours of raw footage into compelling, layered human stories. How do they achieve this alchemy? Discover the tools, techniques, and traits that today’s non-fiction storytellers need. This course will help students navigate the wilderness of raw footage; manage a solid workflow for media; understand and serve a director’s vision; and craft character arcs and scenes that feed an audience’s curiosity to learn more. Students may come to class with raw footage from an edit-ready project or adopt a sample project to use.
