Intro to Video Editing

June 2 - June 23, 2022

7 PM - 9 PM EDT

This 4-part workshop will introduce you to the concepts and techniques of video editing, from basic theory to the hands-on skills needed to craft an edit from start to finish.

We’ll focus specifically on the DaVinci Resolve edit software – getting familiar with the interface and the tools available, and then diving right into editing. Topics covered include: importing and organizing raw media, building a rough cut, identifying changes needed in the edit, adding titles and music, and exporting the completed edit for delivery.

This is an in-person workshop offered at Digital Arts Resource Centre (67 Nicholas St, Ottawa).

Who Is Ineligible for Workshops?

Digital Arts Resource centre does not offer our workshops to persons employed by any government body or any major corporation if the resources are being used to facilitate benefit for one’s employer or for corporate professional development within one of these kinds of organizations. Our workshops are heavily subsidized as they are available only for independent artists/learners who cannot typically afford to take corporate rate workshops. You can find non-subsidized workshops from our friends at SPAO or Henry’s.
