Will I have my own computer?

Yes. Each student has his/her own workstation for the duration of the workshop.

Can you help me find work as an editor/assistant?

While Manhattan Edit Workshop is in no way a placement agency, we actively pursue relationships with the post-production community in order to develop employment opportunities for workshop participants (Manhattan Edit Workforce). More than half of past workshop participants have found work as assistant editors and/or editors, either at post-production facilities or as freelancers. Many of these opportunities were developed within our growing network or potential employers.

Do I need any prior editing or computer knowledge in order to take the course?

Our intro level courses as well as the Six Week Intensive, assume no prior knowledge of editing or software involved.  Previous experience is required for advanced courses. A basic working knowledge of the Macintosh Operation system will enhance your experience.  For those with no Mac experience, we recommend taking a basic introductory Macintosh computer class prior to your Manhattan Edit Workshop course.

As a small art school, one not associated with any universities or colleges, we are unable at this time to offer financial aid or scholarships for our courses.
