What our students say.
“The Art of the Trailer was a fantastic course, not just for editors, but for filmmakers as well. Each lesson thoroughly broke down every aspect of cutting a movie trailer while also being succinct and manageable. I would recommend this course to editors seeking to expand their skills in both storytelling and marketing. The Art of the Trailer is also ideal for independent filmmakers looking to generate interest in their projects. I will be recommending to editors and professors alike.”
“The course is wonderful, and should attract a lot of interest. There’s a great deal to learn and a great deal of information presented in the course. The host is likeable and is a good teacher. I imagine other students are getting a lot out of the content.”
“I had a great time working through this course. I learned a lot about what goes into trailer editing behind the scenes. Having wanted to edit movie trailers for years, and having 7 years of non-trailer editing experience, it was a really cool opportunity and a fun challenge. The feedback from the instructors is very detailed and I really appreciated that as well. Overall I had a great time going through this course and I’d recommend it to anyone who wants to get into trailer editing.”
