EDITSHOTS: GIRL IN BLACK is a movie sequence for you to edit on iPad, iPhone, Mac or PC. It’s a great hands-on way to learn about film language before you start making your own movies. You can edit the clips using standard editing software such as iMovie, Final Cut Pro or Premiere.
There are 55 clips in the download, which also includes a 36-page, iPad-friendly PDF that takes you step by step through editing the movie, covering shot size and selection, camera position and movement, editing on the action, shot-reverse shot, the 180 degree rule and more. There’s also a limited free trial version you can download to try out.
