How to Select a Video Editing School
One of the most important factors students take into consideration when selecting a school for video editing is the type of program a school offers. Video editing theories and techniques are covered in various programs, such as media arts and film and television or video production.
Don't forget these other important considerations:
- Many schools offer certificate programs specifically in video editing, but aspiring video editors may also obtain broader training in the field, inclusive of video editing aspects, through degree programs.
- At the undergraduate level, students may pursue studies culminating in an Associate of Arts, Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) or Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA). Opportunities are also available in the form of a Master of Fine Arts program in film or video production.
- Prospective video editing students seeking flexibility may want to enroll in evening and weekend or online classes, which are widely available.
- Students should consider the facilities and technology a school has to offer since it's important to have access to the most up-to-date hardware and software.
