Intro to Editing, Animation and More!

Did you ever wonder how movies get put together or how they create those awesome special effects? In this course, students will learn how to work in depth with iMovie and/or WeVideo editing software. The students will learn the basic skills to edit their projects, such as; cutting, editing on action, special effects, green screen, working on a timeline, importing and exporting footage, and so much more! This hands-on editing class will walk students through the software start to finish and finally answer the question, How did they make that action sequence with explosions look so cool? *Instructor Daniel Buono – Filmmaker, Producer & Teaching Artist – Has worked on Showtime, HBO, Netflix and PBS documentaries.
