More Is More

...And we mean it.  Beyond a comprehensive education in editing theory and technique, you'll learn the latest digital workflow methods, color grading basics and sound design tips that every editor should know.

Your Choice for Your Work.

Manhattan Edit Workshop’s Six Week Intensive is the only course of its kind that allows you to choose the footage you want to cut, on the editing platform you want. Whether you prefer feature films, documentaries, promos, or music videos, we have the material to give you more options. And as always, choose from a variety of real films – all footage that you can use on your reel. We are constantly acquiring new material, but a few examples include Down to the Bone (Winner LA Film Critics Award for Vera Farmiga), Tonight at Noon (Starring Lauren Ambrose and Ethan Hawke) and The 53rd Calypso (starring Edward Norton).  You can choose to work on any of your projects on either Premiere Pro, FCP X, or Avid Media Composer.

Get Reel and Get Online

One of the most valuable things you will get from your time at Manhattan Edit Workshop is your own sample reel. Built from your in-class work on scenes from actual films, this reel is a showcase that represents your talent and a real edge for getting your foot in the door.
You’ll also build your own web site before you leave the class, so your reel and contact information are available to potential employers immediately.

Your Own Private Workstation.

For the full six weeks you’ll have your own fully equipped editing station and storage drive.  With an intimate 6 to 1 student to teacher ratio, there’s no need to double up and share a system, and no concern that you’ll get lost in an overcrowded classroom. Our facility also features a surround sound system for film and student screenings.
