Premiere Pro For Intermediate Video Editors
This hand-on workshop builds off your basic experience with Premiere Pro to give you the skills and confidence to take your intermediate video editing knowledge to the next level. We will begin by establishing core editing skills, then build on those skills to take you through powerful, advanced, timesaving and creativity boosting techniques. These video editing techniques are used by professional editors every day to create film, television, and video for social media. You’ll learn valuable timesaving shortcuts, workflows, and the keys to the media finishing tools that will help you become an even more capable and sought after video editor.
The intermediate video editing workshop begins with Premiere Pro core editing skills. We’ll make sure you feel confident and clear about standard editing techniques. Even for experienced editors, this part of the workshop can be inspirational as there are many ways to achieve similar results in Premiere Pro. Mastering the fundamentals gives you a great foundation to quickly build upon and develop advanced video editing skills and workflows.
