About Manhattan Edit Workshop

Manhattan Edit Workshop offers a full range of courses, from the Avid, Autodesk, Blackmagic, Assimilate and Apple products to the complete suite of Adobe applications.

Our signature Six-Week Intensive is a jump-start for anyone looking for a career in editing. Learn Avid, Premiere Pro, and After Effects, work with top editors, and create a professional reel to let your talent speak for itself.

Weekend and one-week classes introduce and solidify the core concepts, while custom one on ones let you set your goals at your own pace.

Corporate and group training customizes a curriculum, either in-house or on-site, for professionals eager to learn a new skill or to build on an existing one.

Our instructors are working professionals, as well as certified Avid, Blackmagic, Assimilate and Adobe trainers. A maximum teacher to student ratio of 1:6* ensures individualized attention and allows students to work at their own pace.

All classes are split between lecture and hands-on exercise-so you'll be cutting on your own edit system from day one.

Please email or call us at 212.414.9570 to discuss the class that is right for you.

* Teacher to student ratio does not apply to some of our specialty and masterclass workshops


Mission Statement

Manhattan Edit Workshop's mission is to provide the highest quality education for filmmakers and editors. We focus on both the art and technology inherent to our craft.  We foster a "learn by doing" approach in an atmosphere where mistakes are encouraged as part of the process and the only "silly" question is the one that isn't asked.  And we promise to never wear a suit and tie, while still conducting ourselves and our classes with professionalism and respect - both for what we do as a workshop and for what you deserve as a student. Manhattan Edit Workshop is a licensed Private Career School by the New York State Department of Education.  For more information go to:
