Learn How to Use Avid Media Composer at NYFA
A strong editor knows how to piece together a compelling, engaging story. In NYFA’s 4-Week Digital Editing workshop in NYC and Los Angeles, students learn the art of storytelling for film, television, and media and become proficient in editing with Avid Media Composer.
Program DescriptionProgram Name: 4-Week Avid Digital Editing Workshop
During this hands-on workshop, students gain an introduction to editing for filmmaking, media, entertainment, and more. It is a full-time, intensive workshop that meets during the day, designed for students from various professional, personal, and educational backgrounds. The workshop is a great fit for students or professionals contemplating a longer-term education in editing or industry career.
The workshop curriculum balances projects and coursework, teaching students to edit with Media Composer while they learn the theoretical and technical approaches to editing. Students rapidly learn essential skills in making cuts, post-production workflow, sound design, media management, and basic effects through this hands-on approach.
Each day consists of approximately two to three classes, including supervised lab time. Lab time is part of the schedule and allows the students to practice their editing skills under the guidance of our expert faculty.
At the end of the course, students keep a reel of the work they edited. They may also take the Avid Certified User exams. To learn more about NYFA’s workshops, see NYFA’s Course Catalog or request more information.
