This course will focus on building a familiarity with non-linear video editing software, editing theory, history, and technique. The class will begin by considering best practices for shooting and gathering footage with post-production in mind. We will then focus on becoming comfortable working with the timeline, basic tool kit, filters, image correction, and transition effects in Adobe Premier Pro. We will conclude by working with multiple video layers to make custom visual effects and composite motion images. In addition to in-class exercises, students will complete a short independent video project. This class will be beneficial to both filmmakers seeking to focus more on their editing skills as well as any artist who wants to incorporate video into their artistic practice.
