These days, video is a compelling tool we can use in our projects, to present ideas in a visual way, communicate and promote our activity, and reach new audiences.

Premiere Pro CC is one of the most powerful, flexible, and easy to use editing applications out there.

This workshop is designed for students with no previous experience, coming from different backgrounds: film students, photographers, designers, artists, and all other kind of creatives.

You’ll learn everything you need to know to create video: the fundamentals of the interface, importing and organising material, creating and refining edits, working with audio, working with effects, adding titles, and exporting for distribution.

We won’t focus on the technical aspect, but on “how to get things done”, using real world video materials.

Premiere Pro is an amazing creative tool, that allows us to create compelling video content by ourselves, in a way that is accessible to everybody.


Students must bring their laptops (Mac or PC), with an installed English version of Premiere Pro CC.
A fully functional demo of the software may be downloaded from the Adobe website.
