Basic Video Editing 18 week course
We watch our favourite movies and feel inspired to create our own cinematic works of art. But where do we start? This course is designed to introduce you to two vital areas of production: How to properly use a camera/camcorder and once you’ve gathered your fantastic images/footage... how to put them together.
In the part of the course which deals with basic camera/camcorder techniques, you’ll learn that your camera/camcorder is a lot more sophisticated than you think it is. We can all point and click but this course will allow you to fully explore the features of a modern camera/camcorder.
Do you have the right camera for the job? What are all those confusing menu items and buttons? You’ll learn about framing, focus, exposure, the importance of using a tripod and a whole lot more!
Once you’ve captured your great footage, it’s time to put it together. Editing is an art form and it forms the second part of the course. Using Adobe Premiere Pro, you’ll learn how to transform your raw footage into a finished film.
You’ll learn about file formats and file management. You’ll discover editing workflows and a little bit about creating great effects which can enhance and transform your footage.
This is a great course for someone who wants to unleash their creative, filmmaking talents. Doing the basics well is one of the keys to great moviemaking.
