Phil Peel

Film, video, photography, sound and story




I wonder why every talk nowadays is called a Masterclass?   Anyway having edited since the Stone Age, I’ve picked up a few tips over the years, so next Tuesday evening at Salisbury Arts Centre I’m going to run though some of things I’ve learnt.  ..I have actually edited news using video tape and marking it with chinagraph pencil.   …but I won’t be demonstrating that. 🙂    I’m fiming all day in London and racing back for it.  So assuming John Bruce remembers to pick me up from the Salisbury station I should be there on time.

Here’s the official blurb.

“Fix it in post!” – Editing with Phil Peel

Award winning filmmaker Phil Peel has worked on over 50 short films, screened at festivals all over the world. After leaving the BBC, he founded and developed the Film Course at Salisbury (now Wiltshire) College, before taking over as Course Leader in the BA Film Production at the Arts University at Bournemouth.

He was one of only five English filmmakers to be supported by Creative England to attend the Talent Lab development programme at the 2013 Edinburgh International Film Festival. Apart from his work as a writer/director, Phil currently freelances as editor/colour grader in corporate, music, arts and drama. He’s used virtually every edit system, including 16mm film, Avid, Premiere Pro & Final Cut, and is presently working on FCPX, Da Vinci Resolve and After Effects.

In this Masterclass Phil will look at how editing has evolved, exploring scenes from feature films and music videos. He’ll also show some of the techniques he’s developed for speed editing at recent festivals, and how new technologies have revolutionised post production.

Bar will be open from 7:00pm for a 7:30pm start.
