Class Description

Clear and concise way of presenting subject matter, very personable instructor.
Video student

We will cover many intermediate and advanced editing techniques, and also introduce the students to the full suite of audio and video programs in Creative Cloud including: Photoshop, After Effects, Audition, Prelude, Story and SpeedGrade.

This class will be led by an experienced editor and filmmaker, and will include demos and many hands-on exercises. Class sizes are intentionally kept small to maximize interaction with the instructor. After taking this class, you will gain precise control over virtually every aspect of your video production.

Students should bring headphones (with a standard stereo minijack) so they may better hear their own audio.

Who should take this class?

This class is designed for people who are already familiar with Premiere Pro, and want to take their editing skills to the next level.
