Smithee's Lecture: A Digital Editing Exercise For Film & Video - A good film has great editing - a bad film has bad editing. Video editing is a skill best attained by working on raw footage along with a great script, actors and a solid audio track.

This educational package involves all the tools you need to learn more than the basics of video editing. Included are more than two hours of raw footage. In addition, there are multiple subplots, multiple characters, music, sound effects, graphics and compositing elements.

The Premise is a Smithee's Lecture (in a 25 minute short video) featuring five students in a mad rush to attend a lecture given by famous Hollywood director, Alan Smithee. The scenes are with editing opportunities and examples - split editing, logging, compositing, media management, sound mixing and a number of performance-based decision making. The program also teaches parallel editing, montage editing and continuity editing so students can practice these editing styles.

Mpeg2 files are used. Insert the element discs into a stand alone DVD player. Choose a clip from the menu, then capture the video to your favorite editing system as if you were using a video tape deck. Optionally, you can also use a program like Cinematize to convert the Mpeg2 files to a file compatible to your current editing system.

Once you have the files on your hard drive you can burn them to a disc or export the clips to your favorite video tape format like mini DV or DVCAM. This will ensure future use with your NLE editing system.
