This will be an open edit class for those of any experience level to improve their skills. If students would like to learn editing from scratch, they will learn to source and download materials to create their own informational videos.

They will record a voiceover and can choose from a wide variety of music in our APM music library. Students will learn to put all the pieces together and edit in Davinci Resolve. By the end of three classes, each student will have their very own informational video to show.
