This 1 day course is for filmmakers, video professionals, photographers, and anyone else looking to gain a strong foundation in the necessary knowledge to start editing video captured in today’s digital formats using the powerful, industry software, Adobe Premiere Pro.

Following overview of the proper initial steps in ingesting and organizing media, we will go over the proper steps in processing and preparing various formats of footage for editing. We will discuss different resolutions, frame rates, and codecs, and the theory and use behind each (both in editing and while shooting.)

We will discuss the editing process, and go over necessary steps and helpful tricks to get from a folder full of your raw footage, to a rough edit, and ultimately a final polished piece. We will discuss various popular workflows in Premiere, as well as the pitfalls of diving into a project without an organizational system in place. 

Proper export and delivery of final products will be covered.

Students will need to have Adobe Premiere installed on your home computer. A 7-day free trial is available here
