Focus on Post-Productions | Film Production Program | Vancouver Film School

Post-Production

As an editor, you're a storyteller in every sense of the word. A writer writes and an actor interprets, but you're the one who takes all of that and turns it into a movie. The smallest decision in the editing room can dramatically alter an audience's perception and reaction. Working closely with the director, an editor determines the audience's experience: the what, the how, and the when.

At VFS, you hone your skills on student projects using the same equipment you will find in the industry, such as Avid, and learn the many processes that go into delivering a polished film experience: sound mix, titles, and much more. At the end of your year, you've learned to harness all of the editor's tools to transform raw footage into a film.

Specialist Highlights

During your year, you will select two key filmmaking disciplines as your fields of specialization.

Your software skills continue to grow while specializing in Post-Production. You also gain a deeper understanding of the post-production workflows between sound and special effects departments, as well as the elements that establish you as a true specialist, from colour correction and music editing to compositing and motion graphics.
