The course is designed to equip students with the skills to use not only Adobe Premiere, but any video editing software in the future.

To succeed in video and film editing, it's necessary to have a solid grasp of the language of cinema. This language is essential for telling stories visually, and that's why this course focuses on professional projects, such as award-winning short films, scenes recorded with high-end film cameras, and completely professional music videos.

Film editing is the final stage in the creation of a cinematic work, so having a deep understanding of this art is essential for developing fiction projects. In this course, you'll learn how to use rhythm, transitions, visual effects, cuts, film scripts, color correction, and professional audio editing to tell the stories you've always dreamed of telling. Importantly, this knowledge will not only enable you to tell stories through the language of film, but also to develop projects for current platforms like YouTube and Instagram.

The art of film editing involves being aware of a large number of visual and sound elements that enable us to modify the order of shots, sounds, and frames for aesthetic and artistic purposes. Screenwriting and editing go hand in hand to communicate stories to the audience, and this is precisely what students will learn in this program

  • In this course, students will learn to utilize all of Adobe Premiere's tools to maximize its potential and take their film projects to the next level. Through the application of effective strategies, students will learn how to optimize their computer's performance and maintain a professional level of organization throughout the project.

  • To accurately represent the author's artistic and cinematic intent, students will learn to read and interpret movie scripts, covering concepts such as shot timing, figure-ground relationships, and ellipsis.

  • By incorporating the principles of musical and action rhythms in their editing, students will create a smooth and coherent assembly of shots. Additionally, students will learn professional color grading techniques, including the use of automated masks to add a polished finish to their post-production.

  • Students will master the art of color correction by utilizing HSL color gamma masks, which enables precise adjustments to the color of the image. They will also learn how to stabilize images, add text to images for corporate videos, and create unique transitions through the use of varying opacities.

  • By learning to use Adobe Premiere's audio editing tools, students can professionally edit audio without the need for specialized software, which will allow them to tell compelling stories using sound.

  • Finally, students will learn how to properly format their work to ensure maximum compatibility across various platforms

I'm 2 classes in and so far it's exactly what I was looking for - the editors perspective of filmmaking. The examples from real films (and a music video?) are really valuable to show real life examples of the theory given.
