Help me choose a courseWatch
Now, I know you obviously can't do a university course just to be a video editor, just like you can't do a course for messing around with Photoshop - you do a graphics design course for that which includes a range of things. So I was thinking, what would be the course closest to what I want to be in life? Is it not a course called "Animation"? An Animation course does include a lot of video editing, does include usage of After Effects, but of course it also includes things like 3D modeling, making those models you made work by making them animate. All of this would be helpful to me as a video editor as when I can create my own content, even more possibilities to what I can do as an video editor.
The other option that seems close by subject's name is a course usually called "Film production". Now a course like this mostly includes things like script writing, learning how to adjust lighting in real life, cameras, how to record, mostly physical stuff - of course there is some digital work, but overall I don't think it related nowhere near as much to what I wanna do and be able to do in life.
Could someone give me their thought and opinion, am I right to choose Animation? Thanks for reading!

You will also have the chance to use programs like after effects to create compositions as well as special effects to be used in your created content whether this be a simple show intro or bumper to stuff like broken glass and blood splatter effects.
You will also get a chance to use photoshop to create promotional material for your content. ( Film posters, DVD covers ,etc.)
these production courses can be stuff like, TV Production, Film Production, Creative Media Production, Digital Media Production to name just a few
Animation course on the other hand will teach editing skills but as said you will also have to complete projects in 3D Modelling and Stop Motion Animation.
If you solely want to edit special effects then I would go with an Animation or Visual Effects and Motion Graphics Course as these will focus on Special Effects.
