The BFA Editing programme is under the Film Techniques Department. The program allows the students to become a critical part of the post-production process for filmmaking. Students gain the skills they need to refine and shape footage, gaining confidence in the aesthetic and technical approaches to advance film narrative through story, rhythm, and pace, and create an emotional impact with editing and understanding of two and three-dimensional space. Great emphasis is given to visual storytelling and in the use of all elements of story, performance, cinematography, frame composition, sound, and design to serve the narrative and the director’s vision. The professional relationship with the director is an essential part of the editor’s work and it is developed from the beginning, through the editor’s participation in the project at the development stage. The programme offers courses in the history, theory, and aesthetics of editing, designed to provide students with a comprehensive study of film history, techniques, and practice of Editing in Film and Television and other related media. During the program, students are introduced to the basics of editing, with practice on editing systems interlaced with adequate theory as a strong base for the understanding of the programme. The students join other students in other general courses in the liberal arts that help broaden their scope and in effect enable them to reason more analytically and critically when they work on their film projects in particular, as well as in their scholarly writing in general. As part of their film-making education students develop initiative, discipline, and communication as the core values in order to successfully collaborate with other departments and technicians involved in the making of a film. As such, students are also encouraged to work closely with faculty members of the department in various exercises as well as participate in interdisciplinary projects involving other departments of the institute Experienced lecturers, tutors, and guests provide expert guidance designed to enhance the flow of the student’s individual research, experimentation, and artistic achievement.
