This DVD-ROM of unedited films (‘rushes’) is an ideal way for students to learn about film language and filmmaking before they make movies themselves. You install the films on your computer and edit them using standard software (eg iMovie*, Final Cut Express or Pro, Premiere, Windows Movie Maker)
Editsense is mainly aimed at Secondary and FE (Key Stage 3, GCSE, AS and A-level), particularly the Media Studies, Film Studies and Moving Image Arts specs from WJEC, OCR and AQA. You can also use it to teach media languages in English and video editing in ICT.
This hands-on approach to film teaching also works well with Primary school children (Key Stage 2) and in youth work and with vocational students.
The Editsense disc includes Filmsense: getting started with film language. This interactive guide to film education concepts uses examples from the editable films to introduce mise-en-scène, camera, continuity, time, editing and sound.
Editsense comes in Mac and PC versions and includes instructions, stills, storyboard sheets and examples.
