For content creators, whether for film, TV or the web, the editing process is where stories are shaped and messages honed. Beyond choosing the best shots for your story, the process includes title design, music placement, effects, colour adjustment, and final output and uploading.
Equal parts technical and creative, the Video Editing certificate program introduces you to post-production opportunities as a video/film editor, or assistant or special effects designer. The software used for the intro and advanced courses is Adobe Premiere, the most widely used editing software across the various segments of the media production industry. Also included in the certificate is another Adobe product, After Effects, which is used for animated titles, simple effects, and colour correction. These three courses will give you a solid foundation from which to edit and produce final projects for streaming on YouTube and other various web broadcast platforms.
For many filmmakers, the editing process is where stories are made. The editor shapes the scenes by cutting and trimming and adding effects, music and titles and finishes the process by uploading the final film for screening to an audience. In this introductory course, you will use real project footage and Adobe Premiere Pro editing software to make all of their cuts, trims and effects a reality. This course will utilize both editing theory and practical editing techniques using a series of demonstrations and hands-on assignments. By the end of this course, you will gain a strong technical understanding of video post-production and Adobe Premiere Pro editing software.
This course is about harnessing the power of cutting film and video from both a technical and aesthetic perspective using Adobe Premiere Pro. You will be immersed in the possibilities of different editing techniques for documentary, corporate and dramatic narrative productions. You will learn techniques of creating intermediate effects, audio trimming, colour correction and titles and using your own footage (or professional footage supplied); scenes will be reviewed and analyzed for messaging and storytelling. Adobe After Effects will be introduced to support students' work in effects and animated titles.
