Editing as Practice: Developing Personal Voice

blended course
when 18 July 2022 - 30 July 2022
language English
duration 2 weeks
fee EUR 640

This course is part of the International Summer Academy Salzburg 2022.

The focus of the course is to understand editing as a practice and a continuous process. By engaging with the idea of sequencing and narrative building, students explore how editing can create, alter and influence new meanings in our work. Students learn to analyse various theories and approaches to editing and look at the conjunction of flow, pace and rhythm in a narrative. By drawing parallels between composing music, cinema practices and textual forms, students explore various materials – taken or found, documentary or fiction – to understand editing in contemporary image-making practices. How can the same body of work respond to the needs of different forms of representation, such as for digital platforms, physical exhibition or as a book?
