From workshops with local student film academies, to sponsoring the Karen Schmeer Film Fellowship, MEWShop has a hand in establishing and guiding New York’s flourishing filmmaking community
In the Six-Week Intensive Course at Manhattan Edit Workshop (Mewshop), students learn how to use editing software like Final Cut Pro and Avid.
But the school also emphasizes the importance of editing history and theory, ensuring that students know how, when and why to use the tools they have been taught. After all, editors who achieve success in the industry must understand the art of editing as well as which keys to press on a computer. The school’s Artists in Residence program hammers home this point by bringing editors to screen and discuss their work, sharing with students the lessons they’ve learned throughout their own careers.
Manhattan Edit Workshop (MEWShop), the cutting-edge authorized digital training destination, is pleased to announce the upcoming online availability of its most popular training courses for aspiring and professional editors, filmmakers, and cinematographers. In partnering with Class on Demand, the leading provider of professional educational products for creative markets, MEWShop is prepping to take its immersive, hands-on training to the next level.
“This year's EditFest hopes to bring the audience into the editing room for an insider’s view of what happens during the post process,” says Manhattan Edit Workshop founder Josh Apter. “What's special about any EditFest is the exposure it provides to the creativity behind such an important part of moviemaking. So few people actually get to learn the craft directly from experienced editors.”
Manhattan Edit Workshop was proud to have Stephen Rotter as Artist in Residence for its latest Six Week Course.
