Abstract [en]

Prof. Sylvia Ingemarsdotter and Senior Lecturer Axel Grigor—editing teachers at DAVA, Sweden—discuss the advantages and limitations of enhancing film students’ appreciation of film editing craft by facilitating courses offering practical, real-world editing experience.

By providing access to professional feature film rushes and associated production documents, DAVA aims to expose students to the creative and organisational processes faced by working film editors and editing assistants.

At the heart of this intense period of editing immersion is a journey of creative self-discovery, in which students are encouraged to evaluate their emotional response to actors’ performances and explore various storytelling possibilities.

Guided by regular tutorials, where editing choices and processes are discussed and analysed, students gain new and tangible insights into the film editor’s responsibilities and central role in the filmmaking process.

This session invites schools to discuss how the use of professional film footage affects practice-based editing pedagogy and how this helps students prepare for a career in the field of post-production.

Examples from DAVA students’ editing work will be shown during the presentation.
