Every effort is made to ensure the accuracy of the information contained in this Columbia College Chicago Catalog; however, the Catalog is not a contract but rather a guide for the convenience of students. Columbia College Chicago reserves the right to change or withdraw courses; to change the fees, rules, and calendar for admission, registration, instruction, and graduation; and to change any of its policies or other provisions listed in the Catalog at any time.
Hands-on course helps students continue to develop the necessary skills to become professional editors. Editing projects are increasingly more complex, concluding with finishing a short film. Communicating and collaborating with a director is emphasized. Students use professional state-of-the-art non-linear digital editing equipment and receive ongoing critiques of their work to determine their proficiency of craft and creativity. Understanding NLE workflow from capturing footage through exporting the final project is emphasized.
