Intro to Digital Video Editing
Instructor: Chris Corrente
6 Sessions / Tuesdays, June 25–July 30
Time: 6:30–9:30 pm
This course will introduce students to the foundational principles of video editing at both a technical and conceptual level. Through lecture, discussion, and practice, students will explore the ways in which editing styles differ among cinema, commercial, musical, documentary, and fine-art production contexts. Students will be asked to engage with the theory, techniques, and aesthetics of digital film/video editing, generating four miniature projects before applying the principles learned in each toward the creation of a final project. Each session will begin with a short lecture about the principles and theory of video editing, followed by hands-on instruction and practice time. Note: The course will focus on editing in Adobe Premiere; however, if a student prefers a different non-linear editing program (Final Cut, AVID, etc.), many of the principles are the same. The student would be responsible for compensating for interface differences.
Materials: Each student should have a flash drive or external hard drive with at least 8 GB available storage.
Chris Corrente is an interdisciplinary artist working across the mediums of video, performance, staged photography, and music. His work runs the gamut of human emotions and experiences, ranging from abjection to absurdism. Ruthless in its critique of culture at the micro and macro levels, and drawing equal influence from academia and pop culture, Corrente's work encourages the audience to view both through the same irreverent lens. He is an MFA candidate in New Genres from the San Francisco Art Institute.
