Building a Sequence

Building a Sequence

Learn how to edit different types of shots together in order to create a smooth narrative.

Monday, March 6, 2017 - 6:00pm to 8:00pm

This class, taught from a journalist’s perspective, will teach producers how to use the action of a scene to create a story. Establishing shots, close-ups, medium shots, hands that enter and exit the frame, pans, etc. - how do these different visual devices work together smoothly to create narrative? This class will go over the fundamental building blocks of a sequence and how they work together and will then use provided footage to edit together sequences in class. This practice will help with both editing and shooting, and you will be more aware while shooting in the field of the sort of imagery you need to record for a successful piece. Instructor: Heather Aveson
