ABOUT THE WORKSHOP

How do TV drama editors achieve the magic of screen storytelling, in the pressure cooker of fast turnaround television?

Knowing how to use editing software is one thing, but knowing how to edit is a skill that can make the difference for a show’s success.

Victoria’s Screen Industry Skills Centre Open Channel, invites applications for our upcoming workshop, Television Drama Editing with Steven Robinson, ASE (Neighbours, Putuparri & The Rainmakers, Kath and Kim).

This course will give you insights into the TV Editor’s job, the craft of drama editing, when to follow the rules, and when to break with convention.

Participants are also provided with access to original broadcast TV drama footage from a long running series, to practice editing in a simulated experience. You’ll learn how to adapt during the edit to production resources such as rushes, show bibles, marked-up scripts, and Producer and Director notes.


WHO IS IT FOR?

This is an intermediate/advanced workshop for Editors with prior short film, television, or web-series credits and a basic knowledge of how to operate an editing platform. It is a creative focused course, not a course in technical editing.


WORKSHOP OUTLINE

This two-day intensive workshop will be led by experienced television and film Editor Steven Robinson ASE, and will provide participants with an insight into editing for the fast-paced world of cutting television drama.
