Advanced Diploma in Film Editing & Vfx


Editing is the stage in which a movie gets its perfect shape. The art of editing, no longer an invisible art as it used to be, is perhaps the very essence of Film Making. The Editor is the one who makes the final decisions about what needs to be seen and heard in a film, while also controlling its rhythm & pace. Extremely technical and yet tremendously artistic, a career in film and TV editing is monetarily as well as creatively satisfying.

Editing is an art unto itself.Regardless of the editing system a filmmaker uses, it is the editor’sability to work with the shots and tella story that makes all the difference. At DFS, students learn how to use the digital editing system, Final Cut Pro. Each student edits his or her own films, and can supplement classes with individual consultations at the editing station. Students are taught the fundamental concepts of film editing, both practical and aesthetic. Classes consist of lectures and tutorials that combine technical information and demonstration.

image With this hands on, practical training in the technical departments of Film making, a prospective director becomes much more than a generalist, S/he becomes a specialist with an inside knowledge of each and every technical process of film making. Such knowledge is critical to the survival & success of new directors, since film making itself is becoming much more technical nowadays & workflows are becoming more & more complicated.
