How Does The Art of Action Editing Compare to Traditional Courses?

We’ve already seen how The Art of Action Editing has helped many other editors improve their skills. What would it cost for you to learn these techniques someplace else?

We like to be candid with all your choices, so you’re fully informed.

OPTION 1: FILM SCHOOL

You could try learning how to edit by enrolling in a full-time film school and hope that the curriculum includes plenty of editing training…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 outside 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.

Additionally, they’ll typically only cover the fundamentals and often the instructors don’t have a great deal of real-world industry experience.

Individual class prices at popular trade schools

So far, none of these are great options.

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 actually use
  2. Share knowledge from full-time professional editors
  3. Not empty your wallet

Step-by-step instruction, expert tutors, affordable pricing.

*with optional 12-month payment plan

“Since this is the only film editing course on the market I expected to pay a lot more. Definitely a good price considering all the stuff that comes with it.”

– Erik K, VIDEO EDITOR
