This 3-week course will offer hour long guided sessions to help you build your skills along with 'homework' assignments to help you add to the basics. Make sure to join our Slack Channel – this is where you should post your projects and any reflections on those and receive feedback from peers. You can also ask questions in there – make sure to tag me so I get a notification.
Session 1: 12-1 Tuesday 1/28, 2/4, 2/18.
Session 2: 11-12 Monday 4/27, 5/4
This week is a basics intro to Premiere editing. You will use found footage to create a 5x5 sequence. You will learn how to manage files, set up a project, import clips and do basic timeline edits. If you are completely new to video, you may want to review some of our video basics first.
Once you are finished, hop in the Slack channel: What parts of the assignment did you struggle with? How did you amaze yourself? What are you imagining creating next?
Shoot your own themed 5 x 5 sequence and load it to Slack to share with others.
Shoot or find clips for the week 2 project
This week is all about leveling up your video skills. You will be creating a longer video with original clips that is in the style of a hype video. This week will give you an idea of how to work with audio, as well as improve your video capturing and editing skills.
Although the theme is a travel montage, feel free to flex this as you wish. When you are done, load the video to YouTube and link it in the Slack channel: What parts of the assignment did you struggle with? How did you amaze yourself? What are you imagining creating next?
Review and shoot footage for the Final Project
This is our 'final project' week. As mentioned, you will probably not be able to complete your final project in the hour time we have. (Second session will not have a final project.)
Create a 30 second to 1 minute self-introduction video. This may be a professionally styled 'elevator' speech appropriate for Linked In that showcases your skills/work/projects OR a fun classroom introduction video that tells us about your interests and personality. The b-roll could be used to briefly show hobbies or projects, and the titles could be used to highlight key words. You can sync your cuts to the beat as we did in Week 2.
When you complete your final project load it to YouTube and share in Slack for feedback. How can you use your growing Premiere skills next?
