MEWShop’s Unique Training Philosophy Comes to NAB
MEWShop offers an extensive training curriculum in the latest digital technologies and the industry’s most popular editing tools. Their unique blend of artistic and advanced technical training encompasses everything from workshops in the latest industry trends, to technology specific certification, to customized corporate training, a six-week intensive program featuring the industry’s top editors, and editing’s most sought-out industry events. Program highlights include:
- Custom Workshops: The Digital Cinema/DSLR Workshop guides students through hands-on exercise and demonstration in camera setup, shooting and editing with the most popular HD-DSLR models on the market – including the highly anticipated new AF-100 interchangeable lens camcorder.
- Industry Certification: MEWShop offers certified training in Apple, Avid and Adobe technologies. Both Apple and Avid certification exams are offered onsite at MEWShop’s NYC facilities. Certification provides industry professionals with official recognition of their skills and a definite way to differentiate themselves to potential employers or clients.
- Corporate Training: MEWShop offers custom-built corporate training for professionals looking to develop a new skill or build-upon an existing one. From non-linear editing and graphics, to audio, web, and more, MEWShop instructors provide corporations with both on-site and in-house training from beginning to advanced, and everything in between.
- Six-Week Intensive and Artist in Residence Program: A comprehensive jump-start for anyone looking to advance or launch a career in post-production, the Six-Week Intensive offers certified training in Avid®, Final Cut Pro® and After Effects®, as well as film theory, the history and evolution of editing techniques, aesthetics of narrative, short-form, comedy, and documentary. Students not only learn the tools, but also develop a better understanding of the artistry behind using them. A core component of the six-week intensive, the Artist-in-Residence Program invites top film editors to join the class to screen and discuss their work, while students share their edits for comments and critique.
- EditFest NY: American Cinema Editors brings you EditFest NY co-produced by MEWShop, the east coast version of ACE’s successful EditFest series – direct access to the inner minds and workings of award-winning film and TV editors. EditFest NY caters to editors of all levels – from students and fledgling editors looking to gain insight and experienced members of the industry interested in the intense atmosphere of creative ideas. Attendees from all over the world participate in two days of sharply planned, targeted panels and extensive Q&A sessions with editing’s brightest minds. Last year’s EditFest featured editors such as Thelma Schoonmaker (Goodfellas, The Departed), David Ian Salter (Finding Nemo, Toy Story 2), Alan Heim (All That Jazz, Network), and more.
