Department of Editing for Electronic and Digital Media
About the Department
The Department of Editing for Electronic & Digital Media was started in the year 2017. It has been our aim from the very beginning, to impart extensive and thorough knowledge about the art and technique of Digital Video Editing, keeping ourselves abreast of the ever-changing landscape of Digital Post Production Technology. That is why we give equal exposure to fiction, nonfiction, multicam exercises as well as a good understanding of computer graphics and the challenges of a modern Post Production Eco System through our divers curriculum.
Designed to train ‘editors’ who can handle both online and offline productions to meet the challenges of cost effective fructification and to prepare students to match the demands of postproduction for the emerging media landscape, the course in Editing for Electronic and Digital Media trains students to excel in both live as well as in offline productions. Extensive theory classes, backed up by rigorous practical sessions will allow students to absorb the skill and knowledge needed to tell compelling audio-visual stories. Exposure to various state of the art digital nonlinear postproduction platforms and cutting-edge file transfer protocols will ensure that students are conversant with the latest technologies in their field.
At the same time, extensive practice of working on multi-camera productions will familiarize them with the relevant technologies to handle the pressures of industry workflow.
