Film Editing - Bachelor
The bachelor’s programme in film editing is for students who are interested in becoming a film editor. Main language of instruction is Swedish.
Film editors work for example in film and television production. Film editing is deeply artistic and highly creative. Artistic sensibility and analytical sharpness are crucial characteristics, as well as musicality, a sense of rhythm as well as the flow of image and sound. As a film editor, you work closely with the director and producer during final design of a production, so you need to have good interpersonal skills. You should be able to empathise with and critically assess material.
The most important thing in film editing is sensitivity for the material, as well as developing interpersonal skills with the film’s director and producer.
Primarily, film editing is about storytelling, and describing people and their feelings.
The Bachelor’s Programme in Film editing
During the course you will receive insights into both script work as well as recording work.
Editing affects and shapes the final definitive story, so the film editor provides feedback to both the scriptwriter and the director.
The course offers you the tools to manage major film productions including feature films. You will also get personal experience of editing different types of film, documentary, art, video, commercials and trailers.
During training, you get many opportunities for surprise meetings and contacts across the traditional professional boundaries, because you get an insight into other productive activities, such as radio, television and acting.
The course consists of continuous joint theoretical and practical exercises for all film programmes at the school. In addition, occupational-specific courses are conducted with editing teachers and lecturers in order to gain in-depth knowledge of your subject.
The goal is to offer you the opportunity to develop a professional identity and artistry. The idea is for you to find your own editing methodology, but also to gain some insight into the history of film production.
