Alfred Hitchcock Edit Bay
Film editing can be referred to as an art or skill, the only art that is one of its kinds to cinema, deviating filmmaking from other art forms that preceded it. Film editing is often perceived to be an “invisible art” as when it is skillfully performed, the viewer can become so engrossed that he or she couldn’t know the score of the editor’s work.
Editing a film is working with the raw footage where the editor has to select the shots and put them into a perfect sequence to create a finished look. It is a fundamental part of the post production process which has to be performed with creativity and techniques. MGM Film Art’s Alfred Hitchcock Edit Bay is a visual editing studio comprising of five individual studios with the setup of Final Cut Pro X software installed in the systems.
