How does The Art of Trailer Editing compare to other training options?

We’ve already seen how The Art of Trailer 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 a trailer by enrolling in a full-time film school and hope that the curriculum includes plenty of trailer 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

Don’t worry — you’ll have lifetime access to the video tutorials, the footage and the audio downloads.

You can work on the lessons at your own pace, as quickly or as slowly as you like. If you’ll be out of town, on vacation, or just get swamped for a few days, The Art of Trailer Editing will still be here for you when you’re ready.

How The Art of Trailer Editing works

You can use any editing software to follow along with this course. As long as you know how to cut video and audio onto your timeline and move it around, you’ll be able to use the techniques we teach.

"How does the Professional Edit Review work?"

If you choose the Ultimate version of the course, you’ll also receive a Professional Edit Review. The review will include detailed critiques, suggestions and advice designed to help you improve your cut and take your editing to a higher level.

You can use this review for the trailer you cut with us in our Editing Workshop, OR you can even use it for a trailer you might be making for your own personal project. It’s completely up to you (and will never expire).

"Will I get a certificate that shows I completed the course?"

Yes. When you finish the course, email our editing team at editors@filmeditingpro.com and include a link to your cut.

We do not offer any discounts for the course. We’ve designed it so that all students have access to a variety of pricing levels and payment options to make things fair and accessible for everyone.

"When will this be available again?"

We don’t know the exact dates of each enrollment period. We try to offer a couple opportunities each year but the exact dates depend on our full-time editing schedules. It’s important that we have enough editors available for each enrollment period to help students as they move through the course.
