Description

CERTIFICATE IN VIDEO EDITING

Overview
Editing is a multi-disciplined skill that lies at the heart of filmmaking and requires filmmakers to utilise their technical understanding of editing software, whilst maintaining the narrative integrity of a project. The art of editing is no longer an invisible art as it used to be but perhaps the very essence of Film Making. The Editor is the one who makes the final decisions about what needs to be seen and heard in a film, while also controlling its rhythm & pace. Extremely technical and yet tremendously artistic, a career in film and TV editing is monetarily as well as creatively satisfying.
With Film & Video Editing program, students at NSPD are trained to be Editors and not mere machine operators. Through hands-on practical training, they are taught the fundamental and aesthetic principles of editing for film and television.
