Top student queries - Subject

According to Wikipedia, film editing is a creative and technical part of the post-production process of filmmaking. A film or video editor is responsible for assembling recorded raw material into a fine finished product that's suitable for broadcasting. The raw material may include camera footage, dialogue, sound effects, graphics and visual effects. This is an important role in the post-production process and an editor’s skills can determine the quality of the final product.

Film editing is a process of going through several footages of video shot by the director & choosing the appropriate shots to form a good sequence. Learning the process of editing is very simple, but one needs to practice for long hours to get the grasp of the subject.

Passion for the subject & basic computer knowledge are the only prerequisites before you enroll with us for Film editing course. We start the course from the basics & cover every single process in detail; So, you can learn Film editing without any prior knowledge about the subject.

Yes. If you look at our course curriculum, you will understand how comprehensive it is, when compared to other institutes. Also, we teach you the latest version of the editing software & keep our students updated about the current trends & techniques followed in the editing field.

This choice entirely depends on the student’s interest & his/her objective in learning the editing course. If the purpose is to get a career in films or in Satellite channels, then its better to choose between Avid or FCP, as Premiere pro is not favored in these industry in India. If the purpose is to work only on simple video editing like Short films, Wedding videos, Corporate videos etc, Premiere pro is sufficient.

Some film editors use Avid & others use FCP, & it’s the same situation with satellite channels too. So we would suggest that you learn both, as it would increase your career opportunities. But it’s up to you to decide, depending upon your interest & requirement.

We employ professional editors from the film & television industry to train our students. These editors have their own studios & they allow their students to work on most of their projects, be it advertisements, trailer cuts, music videos etc as part of their training. Most of our students have worked in many such real-time projects in the past, courtesy the trainers. Having said that, we cannot give assurances about live projects to all students, but we create some good projects ourselves & offer them to our Video editing students to work on.

Every company, which operates in the entertainment space, needs Video editing professionals. To name a few verticals as career option for editors – Films, TV Channels, Elearning, Editing studios, Advertisement companies, Internet content providing companies, Web TV, Post production studios & many more.

There is a phenomenal increase in the amount of video being consumed by people on daily basis in the last few years & it is touted to grow even more rapidly in the coming years. People have taken up to videos in a big way – be it short films, music videos, satires, reviews, news, etc & many video content producing companies are thriving today due to this demand.
