Specialization in »Editing Picture & Sound« in BA Film
At the ifs, editors are perceived as creative filmmakers who through sound design and picture montage make a decisive contribution to shaping the story of a film. Editors are co-authors in the assembly of a documentary or a narrative dramaturgy for a fictional story.
The Specialization in Editing Picture & Sound introduces students to the craft of the editor, which they then apply in several editing exercises throughout the entire program. In the project work, the students are responsible in their teams for the picture and sound design in the editing room. The program serves as a training ground and experimental field where editing students can try out and expand their newly gained skills. In the process, they learn to take a position in their work and to develop their personal signature style, which they can then professionally apply in the collaborative process of shaping the dramaturgy of a film.
