"Film montage is the only new art form that the twentieth century has produced.”
Learning objectives: personality, technical knowledge
On the one hand, film montage is a central aspect of theoretical work relating to film design. On the other hand, it also refers to the editing of the film.
In order to assert themselves in constantly-changing everyday practices, students should have acquired editorial skills in technical, aesthetic and social terms by the end of their studies. They should be qualified to work on the post-production of prime time series, TV movies, cinema films, documentaries, and cinematic essays.
Students should learn the effects of images and editing using their senses of sight and feeling, in order to strengthen their emotional intelligence. In doing so they will be able to adopt a position and act ethically. They should be able to communicate logically and effectively with directors, contractors, editors and producers, and see themselves as content and consulting managers, whose 'intellectual fathers' range from Aristotle to Shakespeare, Spielberg, and beyond. A true editor is not an operator, but rather a “consultant for dramatic editing solutions”. A role that cannot be performed by a computer.
