»Right from the start, I have been part of the ifs and its commitment to the education of editors. Through the changes triggered by the arrival of the new technologies, the film editing education concept has had to be revised to tread new and different paths. The Specialization in Editing Picture & Sound is dedicated to both the picture and sound montage and design of a film, giving students the opportunity to orient themselves according to their particular aptitude. As an honorary professor, I am delighted at this opportunity to pass on the love I have for this profession and the ifs, thanks to its fl exibility, has proven to be the best partner.«
