NOTE: This class will be held in a live, online format using the Zoom platform.
Understanding the editor’s job of combining images, words, and audio into a cohesive and engaging body of work is essential for all filmmakers. Adobe’s Premiere has become the preferred software choice for many professional editors.
Topics include: understanding the interface, importing and managing media, building and fine tuning the rough cut, working with sound, working with titles and graphics, the basics of color correction, exporting and sharing your projects.
This course is designed for students with little to no editing experience. We will start with the basics and build from there. It is also good for self-taught editors who would like to break their bad habits.
The format is based around live demos from the instructor and some short assignments for the students to practice each tool and technique taught in the class.
Class meets daily starting at Noon Eastern. We will generally wrap at 4pm. There will also be One-on-One sessions with the instructor to address specific questions and needs
