Any one who has worked with products for what passes for media education in some schools will know how vital Editsense is. Many schools are starting courses on making moviesm, and new GCSE specifications mean that there will be more. One essential lesson will be that making movies is not just about using a camera. Editing is the focus.
As the Editsense creators explain: "However many times you explain the importance of changing shot size and camera position, and dividing a film up into shots, the theory tends to go out of the window as soon as young film-makers get hold of the cameras. Because a lot of our film projects are very short and intensive, we needed a quicker way of getting the participants up to speed."
