how to shape images and sounds into emotions, stories and representations into an authentic narrative with a strong point of view? or, what does indeed happen during the editing process? Within this masterclass, I will address the very subtle process that consists in assigning meaning to images and shaping them into stories.

I will discuss both on a semiotical level and a practical one the stages that we go through as editors/ story tellers /writers when confronted to hundreds of hours of rushes, and how we go about finding the truth of the story contained in those rushes and how to manifest it.
In the end, it is all about finding the unique language and the unique voice of your film.
