National Film and Television School (NFTS)

The National Film and Television School is the UK's national centre of excellence for postgraduate education. Our students are a talented, diverse, creative and enthusiastic bunch, making around a hundred productions a year under the guidance of tutors who are leaders in their own specialist fields.

The emphasis of the Editing curriculum is firmly on storytelling and the relationship between editor and director. Students learn to apply their craft to the demands of fiction, documentary and animation, creating visual narratives while working with sound, music and, where appropriate, special effects. Workshops with other departments develop concepts of visual storytelling, mise-en-scène, storyboarding, sound design, music and scriptwriting.
