How does The Art of Drama Editing compare to other training options?
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!
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:
Give you hands-on, real-world editing skills you can apply right away
Share knowledge sourced from full-time professional editors
Not empty your wallet with 10 years of student loans
How the other options stack up against The Art of Drama Editing

Making a film doesn’t end when the shoot wraps
So, you spent tons of money on the latest film gear and got some beautiful footage…but what’s next? Knowing how to edit that footage is just as important as the best cameras, lenses, lighting and stabilizers.
Learning how to polish and perfect your story after the cameras stop rolling is critical, and the investment is equally important.
