A must-see masterclass for everybody who wants to work in film!
Thank you! I was not only able to learn more about the editing process, but also to understand how important it is to think about editing before you start filming.
This course is worth watching and re-watching!
Just Loved it... Tom makes you want to edit more, to keep learning, basically now I feel infected by editing passion.

Amazing course! I particularly enjoyed the detailed analysis of Tom Cross editing decisions. Very inspiring!
The amount if insight into Tom's editing and the thinking behind the editing as well as the directing is pure gold! One of the best seminars on this topic I have seen so far.
A fabulous course, definitely one of MZed's best courses.
Tom is an excellent teacher, all of the content is outstanding and the insights you will gain on the art and craft of film editing are well worth the price of admission... a relatively rare opportunity to get this level of access to such a talented editor who shares their wisdom on the craft of film editing in articulate depth and practical detail.
Excellent insights. Will go through few times more. Loved it!
A very interesting course. It shows how to cut a film properly. Especially for the emotional impact of every cut.
Lots of valuable information which helps you better see the world around you through the eyes of an editor. Thanks a lot Tom.
Very informative and masterfully done. Great nuggets and wisdom... Loved it.
Really fantastic! The course is just the right mix of practical ideas, editing techniques and styles, and inspirational theory for giving your project emotional impact!
Many great ideas and insider knowledge on how editing can save the story being told with the footage one has.
Tom Cross not only teaches the technology behind film editing; he also teaches the emotion.
I've been editing films and TV for four years, and this course has taught me so much, I highly recommend it for not only editors but directors, cinematographers, producers, and everyone loves to get a deep understanding of the real film industry.
The insights was very useful. How to function as an editor, setting up the editing space, the roles of an editor and the key players. Tom Cross really shows interesting ways to create contrast in the edit that creates rhythm and pace in the scene and overall movie.
Everything an editor needs to know ! Would have been perfect with some materials like original footages to play with and practice different edits, or have script, sound and cam reports examples.
Very great sneak peek at the art of editing Hollywood feature films!
Tom is a facinating editor and storyteller. You hear lots of stories about film production, about editing decisions between him and directors. As well as cool stories of things that happened on set (and you get to know that even with movies with all these crazy budgets mistakes still happen and there is a way to fix it if you look for a reasonable solution).
My only complaint is that we did not see much of the actual techniques of using the editing software as much. Not necessary to learn about Avid Media composer; but at least to see how he actually cuts the sequences instead of just watching playbacks from the movies.
I hope we can get a second part of this course with more practical sessions! Thank you MZed for the high quality courses!
Great insight into the director-editor relationship. Also, very fun to see the thought behind certain scenes and cuts. Would have loved a deeper look into the actual act of cutting a scene.
Great course. Would have loved to see the process of handing it off to the various departments to finish the film as well. Maybe this would fall under an Assistant Editor course.
Good info. Great to see how Tom Cross goes about the thought processes behind why he does what he does when editing different types of projects. His organizational pieces were my favorite. Hard to stay focused with his delivery unfortunately. I can tell he is passionate about his craft and wants to help others get better but it is slow and dry. Thanks for the info.
Interesting course! Thank you!
