MEWShop’s July Six Week Intensive Art of Editing workshop will be taught LIVE online'

Manhattan Edit Workshop (MEWShop), the cutting-edge, digital-training destination for post-production specialists and content creators is proud to announce the upcoming Artist in Residence for the July 6th class will be editor Liza Cardinale, ACE.**

Liza got her start studying film theory at UC Berkeley, where she edited on their tape-to-tape system without any formal training. Later on, she visited a friend on the set of The Truth About Charlie and met the legendary editor Carol Littleton, ACE. After that encounter, Liza decided editing would be her career of choice. “Liza Cardinale’s talent and diverse career will enhance our workshop with invaluable insight and knowledge that will make July’s class very special,” comments MEWShop’s Director of Education and Six Week Instructor Janet Dalton.

The next installment of MEWShop’s Six Week Intensive Workshop will be taught exclusively LIVE online beginning on July 6th, 2020 and held Monday through Friday from 10 AM to 6 PM.

About Manhattan Edit Workshop’s LIVE Online Six Week Intensive Workshop: The post-production industry is highly competitive, and knowing the industry standards – Premiere Pro, After Effects and Avid Media Composer – is critical for success. MEWShop offers in one comprehensive six-week course, the training that young post-production professionals need in each of these editing applications, taught by certified instructors.

Beyond the creative and technical aspects of editing, a portion of the Six Week Intensive Workshop is focused on the best strategies to secure a job once the class ends. Students will draft cover letters and resumes, which will be refined over the span of the class, and also discuss with instructors about interview strategies and job applications, as well as how to appropriately set rates and find the right work for each graduate’s unique interests.

Our LIVE online workshop will run Monday - Friday from 10 a.m. - 6 p.m. with an hour lunch. All media and projects will be provided online with screenings and discussions occurring on either Zoom or Google Hangout. Students will need to obtain an Avid license from Avid or have or obtain an Adobe Premiere Pro license for the duration of the class. These can be purchased separately, or Manhattan Edit Workshop can direct students to free or temporary options. Please make sure that your home computer specs are up to standard to handle these applications prior to taking the workshop. Manhattan Edit Workshop administration will do a trial run the week before the class begins with each student to verify that everything is working.
