About the Instructor

John Morgan (lead instructor) worked as a film editor at a renowned visual effects house, R/GA Digital Studios in New York City, before becoming a full-time teacher. Working alongside top commercial directors, designers, animators, and digital compositors, he helped create ground-breaking special visual effects for motion pictures and television. Trained in both 35mm film and computer-based editing, he has cut everything from TV commercials and documentary films to motion picture special effects and main title sequences. He enjoys teaching and learning from students who share his passion for film. This will be John’s sixth year teaching Young Filmmakers.
