Creating a Simple Trailer in Adobe Premiere Pro

Technical Tutorial Published 9/9/16 Last updated on 6/10/19

Premiere Pro is a seriously robust and powerful program for video production. In introducing basic video editing to students, I thought that making a 20 second trailer out of a screencast might be the way to do it.

The students in my class used Screencast-o-Matic to make screencast videos to teach the world something. This two-part tutorial, then, is about selecting clips within that video, and adding music, transitions and a basic static title.

I would love to know if this is something you would want to try with your students. Leave me a comment below!
