This course is designed for students who want to advance beyond the basics and become more skilled in telling their stories. Using Final Cut Pro X as a guide, students will learn how to create a workflow for their projects; apply proper cuts, transitions, and effects; explore sound mixing; and choose delivery options. Through weekly homework assignments and film screenings, students will also have the opportunity to explore different editing styles and techniques as they develop their own. (18 hours/Intermediate)
