Cutting to the chase. Editing techniques that will make YOUR digital films ROCK!
This stand-alone 90 minute session, derived from a longer 10 week course, is aimed at intermediate Premiere Pro users who we can assume have a basic understanding of the Premiere Pro Application and work-flow.
A typical participant will start this session being able to; import footage, edit clips on the time-line (using the Select Tool) and export a movie. It is unlikely participants will have engaged with deeper elements of the application interface and will be unaware of the rich functionality Premiere Pro offers the creative editor.
The purpose of this session is to develop critical thinking in relation to film narrative. The session is designed to facilitate a 'eureka moment' where students experience how the tools in Premiere Pro can support critical creativity above and beyond that of a simple edit...
The session uses 'Flip Learning Techniques' - where we expect the student to undertake a series of video tutorials providing nuts and bolts training for the application - before attending the session. I mount these on my University 'Online Learning Environment' (Moodle) where they are available to my students (your own web page or an email with text and links would also suffice). As well as providing pre-session exercise, flip learning also provides a resource that can be referred to by students during my session. Great as a 'referable reference' and as support for those participants who have 'not done their homework'.
