Editing with concepts between sound and film with Zoe Kinross

$20 KIAC Member $25 General Public

DATE: March 14th, 6-9pm KIAC Classroom

Following on from the sound recording workshop, Zoe leads a discussion about how sound and visuals work together, specifically in experimental/documentary films. Participants can share back to the group and begin to edit their own new short piece, using sound as the starting point.

An informal workshop identifying how sound and visuals can be combined in innovative and diverse ways, with the potential for an interesting disconnect between the two. Looking at examples of work by a range of directors, we will discuss the techniques employed and think how to work experimentally with our own projects.

You will need to bring in a sound piece and some video footage (up to 10 minutes max). You can edit on whatever software you normally use. Bring in your laptop with edit software.

Skills learnt in this workshop include film analysis with an emphasis on sound and sound & visual editing with various software (Avid, Final Cut Pro, Premiere Pro)



A Focus on Titles  with Jake Bellew

$20 KIAC Member $25 General Public

DATE: March 15th, 6-9pm, KIAC Classroom

Using Adobe Premiere Pro, this workshop will look at how titles relate to the wholeness of the film by pushing the emotional and conceptual drive forward.

The purpose of this workshop is to look at titles as an organic extension of the complete film, neither tacked on nor heavy handed.

We will look at examples of some titles that have a relationship to the films that contain them.

Done entirely within the editing software Adobe Premiere, we will also address technical and personal questions that participants have regarding their own work. Participants can bring existing work or create new work in this workshop.
