  • How to safely back up all files
  • How to use the production paperwork to assist the editing process
  • How to import music, audio and images into a project
  • How to mix and set audio levels
  • How to select the correct shots to achieve the proper look and feel of the film
  • How to export a finished film into a DVD or for upload to a personal website
  • Have the opportunity to watch the film footage edited throughout the course on a large screen

This course is open access and can be attended by students who were involved in making one of the films, or by students who have never attended a class at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.
