About MEWShop’s Six Week Intensive Course
The post-production industry is highly competitive, and knowing the industry standards – Premiere Pro, Final Cut Pro, After Effects and Avid Media Composer – is critical for success. MEWShop is the only school in the world to offer in one comprehensive, six-week course all of these editing applications, taught by certified instructors. No other program guarantees more time in the classroom or more working on one’s own machine. The Six Week Intensive Course takes students through each program as they work on various real-world projects to illustrate the distinct strengths and nuances of each NLE. MEWShop’s Six Week Intensive is also the only course of its kind that allows students to choose the footage they want to edit on the platform they prefer.

Beyond the creative and technical aspects of editing, a portion of the Six Week Intensive Course also is focused on how 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 interview strategies and job applications, as well as how to appropriately set rates and find the right work for each graduate’s unique interests.

Manhattan Edit Workshop is a New York Film Editing School offering a full range of basic to advanced training courses, from the Avid, Autodesk, Assimilate and Apple products to the complete suite of Adobe applications.

Manhattan Edit Workshop's mission is to provide the highest quality education for filmmakers and editors. Focusing on both the art and technology inherent to our craft. We foster a "learn by doing" approach in an atmosphere where mistakes are encouraged as part of the process and the only "silly" question is the one that isn't asked.
