BOOTCAMP

The Power Of Music Editing: Part 1

Saturday, Dec 4, 3PM GMT

Music is one of the most powerful forces on the human consciousness. It is also one of the greatest weapons an editor can have when crafting the emotional journey of the audience. A perfectly scored scene can make our viewers laugh, cry, shock them or break their hearts.

However, next to nothing is taught about the actual rules of how to cut music to a professional level. Search the internet and you’ll find very little in the way of music editing theory and techniques.

This is why we’ve developed a series of 2 hour, live Bootcamps dedicated to mastering this little known part of the art of editing.
