EDITING FOR FILM WRITERS
two sides of the same coin
In one afternoon, Michael Economou will present an intense, structured overview of the Masters Course he teaches at the USC School of Cinema, geared toward film writers.
The similarities between writing and editing will be examined, while underlining how the knowledge of key editing principles can become an extremely useful tool to the screenplay writer, beginner or otherwise. This class is specifically designed for writers who have a basic knowledge of screenplay writing and have written at least one screenplay or are in the process of writing one. This is also essential for the Q&A period following the class, during which the attendees can discuss specific writing problems they face in reference to their own screenplays.
