Premiere Pro Berlin Workshop

LEARN PREMIERE PRO, IN BERLIN!

Premiere Pro CC is one of the most powerful, flexible, and easy to use editing applications out there, and has become the standard editing software in independent filmmaking.

This is an intensive and very complete Workshop (20 hours): you’ll learn the fundamentals of the interface, importing and organising material, creating and refining edits, multicam, working with audio, working with effects and color correction, adding titles, and exporting for distribution.

Even if you already know the basics of Premiere Pro, this workshop will help you improve your skills, know the tools in depth, and edit faster and more confident.

Classes are in Spanish, and groups are very small (7-8 students maximum).

My teaching method is very practical, precise, and structured, and I also make sure things are exciting and fun!
