"The instructors not only know what they're teaching but they know how to teach. The support staff was very helpful and the owner of the school is serious about helping people find jobs after graduating.
Each of us had individual workstations and we didn't just learn the programs - there were film viewings, readings and discussions on the aesthetics of editing, which was something else I was looking for in an editing class. All around I'd say it was definitely worth it." - Dave Oates, Jan 2009 Graduate

"I learned more in that six weeks than in the six years pervious." - Frank Perotto, Feb 2008 Graduate, Editor, MTV

Whether just starting out in a new career, switching gears from an old one, or pursuing your own creative goals, this class helps you develop a solid foundation as a visual artist-the practical tools you need every day and the style that makes your voice unique.

The best class just got even better. Besides the industry leading editing programs, Mewshop has found that more and more, jobs require working knowledge of  After Effects. In response to this demand we have added two days of After Effects training to our signature workshop.  When you leave Mewshop, you will have the tools you need to compete in the job market.

Manhattan Edit Workshop's Six Week Intensive is the only course of its kind that allows you to choose the footage you want to edit. Whether you prefer feature films, documentaries, promos, or music videos, we have the material to give you more options. And as always, choose from a variety of real films, not stale stock footage. Just a few examples include Down to the Bone (Winner LA Film Critics Award fort Best Actress), Tonight at Noon (Starring Lauren Ambrose and Ethan Hawke) and The 53rd Calypso (starring Edward Norton).

Six Week Intensives are Monday through Friday 10AM - 5PM
