This comprehensive course provides a unique opportunity to learn and practice two powerful, industry standard softwares, as well as understand how these tools work seamlessly together in an edit workflow.

Adobe Premiere has a dynamic and intuitive interface and continues to be the preferred choice of many professional editors in the film industry. After Effects is a must for anyone working seriously with motion graphics and animation. The filmmaker who can be equipped with both of these tools will see tremendous benefits.

We’ll start with Premiere. Students learn proper project set-up, organization, and trimming tools, and then transition into cutting a sequence with guidance from the instructor, that will include a placeholder graphic. Next we will dive into After Effects; the interface, the tools, and the fundamentals of creating basic motion graphics. The culminating exercises will be combining our work in the two programs, and demonstrating how the dynamic link technology allows you to work on a sequence across the platforms.

This course is designed for students with a basic understanding of the edit process, who wish to explore working with both Premiere and After Effects. Intermediate editors who wish to observe the fluidity of these programs working in conjunction are also welcome, as are editors who work in other softwares who are considering moving to Adobe.

Students leave with an understanding of the core fundamentals of both Adobe Premiere, and Adobe After Effects, and the dynamic ways in which the two interact to provide robust possibilities in your editing workflow.

Students must have both Adobe Premiere and After Effects installed on their home computer. A 7-day free trial is available here.

Students may work on either Mac or PC, but should be proficient in basic computer skills.
