Ko te manu e kai ana i te miro nōnā te ngahere,
ko te manu e kai ana i te mātauranga nōnā te ao.
‘The forest belongs to the bird who feasts on the miro berry,
the world belongs to the bird who feasts on education’.
Two-Day Workshop for Maori Editors 17 & 18 April
This workshop is for emerging to mid-level Maori editors with a focus on preparing you to transition to independent drama productions.
Tikanga Maori will be in place, some tutors are te reo speakers, and te reo is welcomed in the workshop.
We will cover:
- setting up an Editorial department
- interaction with the pre-production and production crew
- scheduling an edit
- setting up the workflow systems from camera originals through to handovers to independent post houses (sound design, picture conform, composer, VFX, titles graphic artist)
- relationships with other departments including producers and directors
- handling screenings, and giving and receiving feedback.
The focus is on managing an independent Editorial department for an independent production, not on how to edit – it is assumed that you know how to edit and you have your own style and vision that you should retain. The workshop will use Avid Ultimate 2020.8, and you are urged to familiarise yourself via online tutorials.
The workshop commences at 9:30am each day, finishing around 4:30pm with capacity for a chat, or a little extra time for finishing a task until 5:30pm if required. Lunch is provided, tea and coffee for morning and afternoon breaks.
Limited Spaces. We will email you to confirm whether you’ve been accepted.
