FREE Weekly Webinar

The Craft of Editing

(Click the date link below to register today!)

THURSDAY, 9 AM, Dec. 13, 2018, thru Jan. 6, 2019

All times are Los Angeles PDT.


As a holiday treat, we are re-running one of my favorite series: “The Craft of Editing.”

“The Craft of Editing” is a four-part series first created for the Alaska Society for Technology in Education (ASTE). It is targeted at new or self-taught video editors who may understand editing technology, but need help with their creative or story-telling skills.

In this training, watch over my shoulder and see what I do first and why. Learn how I think about an edit. How I look at shots and determine the best shot selection. During this training, I illustrate my process and philosophy of being creative.

Part 1: Pre-production and production planning
Part 2: Editing interviews, news and montages
Part 3: Editing a dramatic scene
Part 4: Music and multicam editing

NOTE: Some topics repeat between the movies due to how these were produced.

This series runs at 9 AM every Thursday starting Dec. 13 and ending Jan. 3, 2019.

NOTE: The registration link above signs you up for the entire four-part series.


Whether you use Avid, Adobe, or Apple, this series focuses on the craft of editing. (I’m using an older version of FCP X, but don’t let that stand in your way.)

Ultimately, each of us develops a creative technique that works best for our style of editing. This training is designed to help you develop your skills and polish the ones you already have. All you need to watch is a web browser.

NOTE: We recommend you use either Safari or Chrome to view this webinar. Firefox seems to have problems playing audio.
