Last summer, Inside the Edit, an online editing course that focuses solely on the creative aspects of editing, launched to much fanfare.
Although everyone seemed to agree that the course would be a fantastic resource and learning experience for aspiring editors, the shared sentiment from most of the filmmaking community was that the course was just too expensive. Luckily, our friends at Inside the Edit heard that message loud and clear, and the course is now being offered as a monthly or yearly subscription.
On a monthly basis, the course will cost £40, and yearly it will cost £400. Depending on the current conversion rate, that's roughly $55-60/month or $550-600/year. While still not inexpensive by any stretch of the imagination, these prices provide a significant discount over the full purchase price of £3000 ($4500).
The folks at Inside the Edit also put together a fresh new promo video in order to spread the word about the course's new pricing structure. Check it out below.

If you're curious about what sets Inside the Edit apart from the multitude of online tutorials about editing and software use, you need not look past the course's first tutorial, which does a fantastic job of explaining exactly how the course works and what you'll learn.

I've had the pleasure of being a member of Inside the Edit for the past few months, and while it's definitely still in its early stages of development, I can honestly say that the material presented in the course is far more in-depth than any other editing instruction I've had to date, and that includes several years of film school. While the price might still be a hard pill to swallow for editing enthusiasts, it's definitely worth considering if want to make a career out of editing, because the information in the course will help you understand the subtle, yet complex decisions that an editor must make while crafting a piece.
