He told that no Pakistani university or institute is providing the required training facilities in the field of film making and editing and even those universities that are offering these training courses are sans practical work and thus remains incomplete. During these training courses, students will be given theory as well as practical training and after passing out these video editors use creative and technical skills to assemble recorded raw material into a finished product, suitable for broadcasting at any level.
The CEO KHM and Shalaan Pakistan told inaugural class students that as a film/video editor, they would manage material such as camera footage, dialogue, sound effects, graphics and special effects to produce a final film or video product. “This is a key role in the post-production process and your skills can determine the quality and delivery of the finished result. “, he mentioned stating more the digital technology, specialist computer software and high-quality digitization of sound and pictures have effectively replaced the traditional manual method of cutting film.
