Film: Exploring Documentary Editing Techniques – University Tutorial With Patrick McGrady From University of East Anglia

8th November 2021 @ 16:45 - 17:30



In this live interactive Film tutorial, we will be joined by Patrick McGrady, a leading university academic and film maker from University of East Anglia, who will explore Editing Techniques.

The full context/introduction to this live and interactive discussion is provided in advance by the university in a Headliner recorded resource (see below) which offers 18 minutes of insights into the editor’s role as a storyteller and exploring method, style, intention and impact with respect to the choices the editor makes. This recording can be watched as a class activity or independently in preparation for the discussion.

This session will further the depth of students’ understanding of the topic whilst enabling them to access and experience a live online university tutorial.

The Headliner recording is below.



Our events are designed so that a group of students can take part from a classroom, or students and teachers can take part as individuals, either from school or from home. This means that sessions will continue irrespective of possible school closures.

As a live, participative event, this session will not be recorded but access to the Headliner recording will continue to be accessible.


Suitable for: Key Stage 5 students studying or with an interest in studying Film and related subjects. Teachers and members of school staff, as always, are welcome too and participants can join as individuals from school/college or home, or as a group from school/college.

Preparation/Pre-Reading: Students are asked to watch the Headliner recording and consider some of the key issues.

The IT Setup: The event will be run on Bluejeans and participants will be able to join using laptops, tablets, and mobile devices. If you are joining as a school group, we recommend connecting with one device and projecting on to a whiteboard. You will be able to interact with the university via a microphone and/or typed comments and questions. Full details will be sent to those who have registered (see below) prior to the event.

Booking a Place: This is free for schools and colleges. If you would like to take part in this event, please register your interest using the link to the registration form below:
