Montage/editing

"Film montage is the only new art form that the twentieth century has produced.”   

Alfred Hitchcock

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. They will therefore be able to take positions, 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, to Spielberg, and beyond. A true editor is not an operator, but rather a “consultant for dramatic editing solutions”. This is a role that cannot be performed by a computer.
