With ever growing access to high-quality video cameras, knowing how to turn raw footage into a coherent film is what separates the amateurs from the pros. Whether you are cutting a film or a Youtube video, these hands-on classes will teach the fundamentals of using Adobe Premiere, an advanced, industry-standard video editing platform. One of Pull Focus’ professional editors will mentor small classes through the workflow, layout and functions of Premiere, as well as the foundations of editing theory.
