‘Classroom in a Cup: Final Cut Pro X’ infuses humor with logic, helping editors of all skill levels master the new Final Cut Pro X editing application
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.
Hands-on, instructor-led certified training classes are the most efficient way to learn editing. I was a self-taught Avid and FCP editor for years and felt very comfortable with the machinery. It wasn't until I finally took my certified training to become an instructor that I saw what I was missing! I was shocked at the huge gaps in my knowledge. I'm a faster and better editor for having learned the software in a certified training environment, and I've seen the same results in countless MEW Shop students.
