Watch: Salt Q&A with Erin Murphy, Visual Storytelling with Archival Film

Last week filmmaker Erin Murphy joined us for a Zoom Q&A session to fill us in on all the details of her upcoming online Salt workshop: Visual Storytelling with Archival Film Editing. Thanks to everyone who joined us! If you missed it -not to worry- we hope the YouTube replay below answers any question you might have, and don't hesitate to drop us a line at: ctudy@meca.edu with new questions. 

Tell a story. Tell your story — and learn how to use the footage of one hundred years of film history as your collage. In this course, students will learn to edit film using archival film material from public archives. Students will learn how to develop an idea using these materials, turn that idea into a story, and edit that story into a compelling short film.
