Miami Digital Editing Workshops

Overview of Our Hands-on Digital Editing Workshops

A few decades ago, film editing was the province of a few select professionals working primarily in film and television. Today, with digital video being seen everywhere from the cinema to online, there has never been a greater demand for well-trained digital editors.

At New York Film Academy South Beach’s Digital Editing School, we make it our goal to prepare the next generation of digital editors to thrive in the modern economy by learning the essentials of how storytelling and nonlinear editing relate to one another. Designed for driven and hard-working individuals who desire to obtain a strong foundation in the craft of digital editing, students study under professional filmmakers and editors to learn how to use the industry-standard editing software, Avid Media Composer. In addition to establishing a firm handle over the technical craft of digital post-production, students are also immersed in the conceptual art of editing and study how editing can not only give form to a story, but also add a whole other dimension to a project.

The top digital editing school helps students to achieve their professional goals while teaching them a range of industry standard editing software that will be of great use in multimedia production and beyond.

Four-Week Digital Editing Workshop Overview

Over a four-week period, students enrolling in the digital editing workshop are immersed in studying the craft of digital video editing. Emphasizing in equal parts the technical skills and conceptual art of the digital post-production process, students learn the fundamentals of nonlinear editing through each working on his or her own editing station at NYFA South Beach.

In this full-time workshop, the first two weeks cover Avid’s Media Composer 101 Editing Essentials and Media Composer 110 Effects Essentials editing software, equipping students with a strong grounding in the skills necessary for successful editing in an Avid environment. In addition to learning how to set up projects, input/output media, trim, and create effects, students will complete additional creative projects throughout the workshops, including a dialogue scene, a music video, and a movie trailer.

In the second half of the workshop, students will learn professional sound design and mixing in ProTools, alongside compositing and basic animation in Adobe After Effects and Adobe Photoshop. Students who successfully complete the workshop leave with a strong understanding of the art and craft of digital editing and the skills to achieve their professional goals.
