This workshop is geared toward video enthusiasts and media freelancers who want a crash course on the fundamentals of video editing in Adobe Premiere. This class uses a hands-on approach to learning the basic principles of video editing and overcoming challenges that inexperienced editors might face when cutting their films.
Students will learn how to import clips, add them to a timeline, editing techniques, adding effects & transformations, audio, titles, basic colour correction, finishing and exporting a video for distribution. Video editing material will be provided but students are encouraged to bring their projects. By the end of this workshop, you will have gained the knowledge and tools to create professional videos.
Note: We can provide a laptop for use in the workshop, if needed.
