Discount for 2-Day Premiere Pro Workshop in Berkeley, CA

Premiere Pro For Self-Taught Video Editors Worshop

Dates: 07/10/2019 – 07/11/2019
Location: Berkeley, CA

Most editors are self-taught – learning post-production skills while working projects. This approach to learning leads to solid, dependable workflows, but it’s easy to miss techniques, shortcuts, buttons and preferences that might dramatically speed up and simplify the creative work of the editor. If a particular feature never came up while editing, why learn it? It’s common to work harder than necessary to complete an edit because there isn’t the time or access to training to iron out the wrinkles in a workflow.

Course Overview
Most of the more advanced editing workflows in Premiere Pro only make sense if you understand the fundamentals. This  2- day training course offers a strong emphasis on both the foundations of the fundamentals and the advanced techniques, with just a cursory nod to the mid-level editing skills that self-taught editors will already know.

You know how to perform an edit but do you know why it’s called a three-point edit? Why would you choose to perform a four-point edit? Perhaps you know how to render but not necessarily why? And what impact does it have on output? Perhaps you’d like to use multi-camera editing tools but you’re not familiar with nesting sequences – a technique that’s just one step in the multi-camera workflow.

Premiere Pro for self-taught editors fills the knowledge gaps – come along with your most challenging questions, build your confidence with the fundamentals and take your editing skills to the next level with advanced editing techniques and creative solutions to the challenges editors face every day.

Who Should Attend?
This workshop is ideal for videographers, content creators, journalists, editors, new media managers, media professionals, content marketers, communications and PR, publishers, educators, and web producers.
