Non-Linear Editing for the Smaller College-Level Production Program, Rev. 2.0.
This paper focuses on a specific topic and contention: Non-linear editing earns its place in a liberal arts setting because it is a superior tool to teach the concepts of how moving picture discourse is constructed through editing. The paper first points out that most students at small liberal arts colleges are not going to wind up working professionally in the field of film production, and questions why they need to be taught about operating any kind of editing system, since the professional environment will almost always afford them the services of an expert technician. It also notes, however, that the separation of theory and practice is deeply problematic in terms of social philosophy, much less pedagogical philosophy, and that there is both practical and conceptual value in learning how to make a video edit. The paper is divided into the following detailed parts: (1) Non-Linear Editing and Liberal Arts Pedagogy; (2) General Issues in Technology; (3) An Ideal System...; and (4) Specific Systems. Appended are: G3/G4 Genealogy; Using Removable Hard Drives with a Mac; and Review of the Matrox RT2000. (NKA)
