About Manhattan Edit Workshop’s LIVE Online Six Week Intensive Workshop:

The post-production industry is highly competitive, and knowing the industry standards – Premiere Pro, After Effects and Avid Media Composer – is critical for success.  MEWShop offers all of this in one comprehensive six-week course, the training that aspiring post-production professionals need in each of these editing applications, taught by certified instructors.

Beyond the creative and technical aspects of editing, a portion of the Six Week Intensive Workshop is focused on the best strategies to secure a job once the class ends.  Students will draft cover letters and resumes, which will be refined over the span of the class, and also discuss with instructors about interview strategies and job applications, as well as how to appropriately set rates and find the right work for each graduate’s unique interests.

Our LIVE online workshop will run Monday – Friday from 10am EST – 6pm EST with an hour lunch.  All media and projects will be provided online with screenings and discussions occurring on either Zoom or Google Hangout.  Students will need to obtain an Avid license from Avid or have or obtain an Adobe Premiere Pro license for the duration of the class.  These can be purchased separately, or Manhattan Edit Workshop can direct students to free or temporary options.  Please make sure that your home computer specs are up to standard to handle these applications prior to taking the workshop.  Manhattan Edit Workshop administration will do a trial run the week before the class begins with each student to verify that everything is working.
