Filmmakers Inspired by Editing Workshop

Published: 8th December 2017

Our young filmmakers took a trip from The Customs House to the Tyneside Cinema Pop-Up Film School for an editing workshop last week.

The session, delivered by Sean and John, looked at the history of editing and how it has developed over time. The group learned how innovative filmmakers pioneered the editing techniques we take for granted in modern cinema. The young people also had the chance to try out editing first hand, using Final Cut Pro.

The filmmakers left the session feeling inspired and eager to develop their editing skills further back at The Customs House.

This workshop was only possible thanks to funding from the Rotary Club of Jarrow with Harton. The Rotary Club has also been generous enough to fund more sessions, including a chance to work with a filmmaker on location during their forthcoming film shoot.
