Who Should Attend:

Video Editors, Directors and anyone with an interest in visual storytelling and the moving picture.

As there will be hands on exercises involving editing a short video, an ability to use editing software like Final Cut Pro 7/Final Cut Pro X, iMovie, or Adobe Premiere Pro would be needed. Editing workstations will be provided, or attendees can choose to bring their own laptops for editing


Course Outline:

In recent years ,the cost of equipment and software for video editing has decreased dramatically, with powerful video tools now available to practically anyone.

While the tools have become cheaper and easier to use, the skill involved in editing remains something that must be learned through experience. Having an understanding of the aesthetics of editing is what truly makes a good editor.

In this master class, experienced editor and instructor Gek Li San discusses one of the most important parts of editing - RHYTHM.

The rhythms created by the picture editor are the movements and transitions between frames, which best tell the story or shift emotional energy between actors, and make emotional and rhythmic connections with the audience.

Faced with hundreds of hours of raw footage, a film editor must craft the pieces into a coherent whole. Rhythm is a fundamental tool of the film editor: when a filmmaker adjusts the length of shots in relation to one another, he or she affects the entire pace, structure, and mood of the film.

Film editors often just say the whole process is intuitive and they cut when it 'feels right'. But what is it in the edit rhythm that creates a certain mood, or emotional energy? How does a film connect with its audience? What is it that holds our attention and triggers our response to the images and sounds moving before us?

In this master class , Li San tackles these questions ,using popular film scenes as visual tools to explain various editing conventions and stylistic choices

Among the topics will discuss during the class are;


• Rhythmic Intuition

• Timing and pacing

• Tension, Release and Synchronisation

• Physical Rhythm

• Emotional Rhythm

• Event Rhythm


Using examples of films from the 1930s to the 2000s, Li San will dissect the rhythm of the edits in each film to give attendees a new perspective of the power of editing rhythm, and its effect on the overall feel of the film.

She will also use film theories from two renowned film editing theorists, Karen Pearlman and Maya Deren to analyse the films.

Participants will also have a hands on session where they can apply some of the concepts learned.

The idea is to challenge them with a new way of thinking about story telling and their newly acquired rhythm theory.

There will then be a review and discussion of the various interpretations of their edited footage.

Li San will also lead discussions with the audience and take questions about editing decisions, her own experiences in editing for a range of productions and her own editing philosophy.

Participants will leave the class having learnt not just about the art of editing but also with an increased knowledge of film history.

For existing video editors it is also an opportunity to rethink and reflect on their existing editing style and philosophy. They will also be better prepared to handle a wider range of projects. For new video editors it gives them a good grounding on the philosophy of the edit and will help them to make stronger editing decisions.

Documentaries present unique challenges to the the editor, but can also be incredibly fulfilling as well. The editor can play a major role in shaping the final outcome as the story often only comes together in the edit suite.

Understanding the various approaches to the documentary allow an editor to more effectively tell the story in the best possible way . Having a firm understanding of documentary editing makes the editor much more hireable and the skills learned carry over into all aspects of editing.

The role of the producer has changed evolved over the years and producers are now often expected to be able to edit their own pitch videos ,stories or rough cuts . A glance at any recruitment ad for producers now often specifies the ability to edit as a prerequisite and in times of ultra fast turnaround they may not be able to rely on dedicated editors to craft the edit from start to finish.  

Producers who do not this skillset risk being left behind in the competitive global market .
