A comprehensive introduction to the latest incarnation of Adobe's acclaimed editing platform, Premiere Pro CC, this course will not only teach you how to get the best out of the software, but also develop your ability to craft a story - whether you are editing for broadcast or the web, film or corporate.

The course is structured so that each delegate is taken step-by-step through the editing software, from the basic set-up, workflow and project management to progressively more sophisticated tools and techniques - including shortcuts, basic effects and compression methods - working on projects as they go so that they are implementing immediately what they are taught.

By the end of the course you will be able to edit short sequences on Premiere Pro, create a project, manage your workflow and upload your content in the right formats for online. You will also have an awareness of how to make the most of your footage and tell a story visually.
