The video editing process is where decisions are made about the tone, feel and rhythm of a story. Through the precision of cuts and transitions, editors control the emotional response to their work. In this course you will be introduced to key features of industry-standard editing software Adobe Premiere Pro, learning shortcuts, professional workflows and standard post-production practices. The class dives into the world of film editing as you establish a personal editing style, culminating with the delivery of an edited video cut together from stock footage.


Students must be an adult age 18 or older to participate.
