Film editing has evolved enormously in parallel to film language itself. Thanks to technical advances, it has ceased to be an invisible element and has come to be considered one of the main narrative and expressive tools, allowing the elaboration of complex discourses through structure and different resources, which gives it an artistic consideration in its own right.

Film digitisation has brought about a radical change in the practice of film editing. Continuous technological advances require a high level of technology and the need for professionals in the sector to constantly update their training, which is why the master’s degree does not ignore technical training so that students can tackle any project from all angles. However, our main focus is undoubtedly training in the narrative and language skills that made editing a pillar of the art of filmmaking: a form of rewriting.

Objectives and Skills

The student will be able to take charge of the editing of any type of audiovisual work, acquiring the necessary knowledge and technique of all those editing and post-production processes, which are carried out by both editors and the rest of the members of the editing team.

At the end of the course, the student should be able to:

  • Learn to evaluate the structure of each montage from a global analysis, by means of the elaboration of schemes that allow a quick and simple vision of the whole audiovisual work.
  • To perceive the links and criteria that unite script, production and editing.
  • Understand the psychology and emotions of the spectator, as well as the origin of the most relevant audiovisual genres.
  • Master the processes of construction of scenes, sequences and transitions.
  • Be able to handle the editing of all types of audiovisual works.
  • Know the method and technique of editing and post-production processes.
  • Understand the technology behind the image treatment processes, and the importance of the editing team in the correct management of the material.
  • Master with fluency the editing software and the processes that come into contact with the rest of the technical/artistic departments, allowing the optimal development of the post-production processes of laboratory, sound design or visual effects.
