Video Editing in Premiere Pro is a deep dive into the skills needed for a successful career as an editor for films and video using Premiere Pro. This online workshop is offered by Georgia Media Workshops, and will provide 16 sessions of project-based learning to get you up to speed on all aspects of Premiere. Students will start with the basics, and move into effects, motion and titles. Once a week, the class will convene a 2-hour live stream with the instructor to ask questions, go over homework assignments and view other work. This is a fantastic opportunity to learn from a university film professor, offered at unheard of prices through the Atlanta Film Society. Join us!

Taught by GMW's Allison Hogue, Assistant Professor of Film and Digital Media at North Georgia University.
