How does Secrets of Creative Editing compare to other training options?

OPTION 1: FILM SCHOOL

You could try honing your editing skills by enrolling in a full-time film school and hope that the curriculum includes the range of training you want and need…but most don’t.

FACT: only about 8% of film school classes teach any form of editing

Plus, film school is pretty darn expensive.

Look at these film school tuition stats…

Total tuition & fees for a film degree

To be clear, this is NOT meant to bash film school.

Film schools are great at what they do. They’re meant to give you broad exposure to all aspects of cinematography and they accomplish that very successfully.

But what if you want to specifically improve your editing? 

At a film school, you’re usually out of luck.

Most film schools are not designed to train editors.

You might be lucky to get 2 or 3 classes dedicated to editing, along with a bit of lab time cutting together a final project.

But their focus is not on really teaching the craft of editing. It can’t be – there just isn’t enough time!

OPTION 2: TRADE SCHOOL

You could take individual editing classes at a trade school.

But these are still pretty pricey and they’ll typically only cover the fundamentals.

Look at these trade school tuition stats…

Individual class prices at popular trade schools

So far, none of these are great options, which is why we created this…

OPTION 3: ONLINE TRAINING WITH FILM EDITING PRO

If you choose to enroll in a course with Film Editing Pro, you can feel confident that the training is specifically designed to do three things:

  1. Give you hands-on, real-world editing skills you can apply right away
  2. Share knowledge sourced from full-time professional editors
