|Institution||Goldsmiths, University of London View institution profile|
|Department||Media, Communications and Cultural Studies|
This MA will enhance your narrative skills as an editor of fiction for film and television.
This Masters is a pathway of MA Filmmaking, so that in addition to your specialised training you will collaborate with students across all specialisms on a variety of film projects.
Experienced tutors and guests provide expert guidance designed to enhance the flow of your individual research, experimentation and artistic achievement.
You will complete your degree by working in your specialist role on a major production in the final term.
What we offer The programme is housed in a new purpose-built media facility equipped with state-of-the art teaching spaces including a film studio equipped with Arri lighting and Green Screen facilities. Edit suites are equipped with Avid Media Composer and tuition is offered, giving the opportunity to gain Avid Certified User accreditation (Media Composer 101 and 110). Edit suites, screening rooms and sound studios are linked via Avid’s industry standard ISIS storage area network.
You will work to professional standards using high-end digital formats. You will also learn sophisticated postproduction workflow techniques, gaining a wealth of experience in off-line editing and an understanding of how this fits in with on-line editing, visual effects and picture grading.
In addition to your specialist area, you can attend classes in related disciplines. This framework is designed to stimulate collaborative practice by providing you with a breadth of filmmaking knowledge combined with a high level of expertise in your chosen filmmaking discipline.
Expert guidance Tutors on the MA Filmaking course have a wealth of experience in the film and television industry. We maintain close links with the industry – the editing department has, for the last few years, had a strong relationship with the Guild of British Film and Television Editors who have provided mentors for our students.
