Introduction to Adobe Premiere

These two 4-hour workshops aim to help editors transition to Adobe Premiere, the rising industry standard editing software. The workshops are designed to be affordable and comprehensive, and concentrate specifically on editors transitioning from softwares such as Final Cut Pro 7 and Avid.

Workshop one is a broad overview of Adobe Premiere for beginners. Workshop two centers on more advanced techniques and editing workflows. Students are welcome and encouraged to enroll in both.
