In film-making editing is one of the most important phase. It is where the director and editors aim to achieve the production of a meaning or message the film was set out to convey. A single image conveys a different meaning than a combination of images presented as a sequence. Rearranging the shots can completely change the meaning that is conveyed to the viewer.
The editor fades one shot to black and then fades in the next. Often used to indicate a change in time and place.
Final cut the finished edit of a film, approved by the director and the producer. This is what the audience sees.
By this course we mean the study of theory and practice under a good film editor and subsequent training.
