Who it's for?

Producers, directors, APs, researchers and others looking to learn the Adobe Premiere Pro CS6 interface including shortcuts and better workflow management in order to edit rough cuts or taster tapes. The course is also beneficial for those looking to improve their directing skills by acquiring a better understanding of how sequences are put together. This course is particularly aimed at those multi-skilling film-makers looking to develop their versatility, creativity and employability. 


None. Some participants may have extensive experience of sitting in on edits, while others may have taught themselves (or been taught) rudimentary Premiere Pro (or another edit software), while yet others may be complete novices. Our small class sizes means we can cater for a breadth of experience and backgrounds while ensuring each person gets plenty of one-on-one input from the tutor. 


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.

Do I need to bring anything to the course?
It’s advisable to bring a pen and some notepaper. Otherwise, all you need is a receptive mind and your energy and enthusiasm.

Is lunch provided?
We keep you replenished with teas, coffee, biscuits and fruit. We don’t provide lunch – although there are a number of sandwich shops, cafes, restaurants close by, as well as a supermarket.

What if I have to cancel?
If you cancel more than 10 working days before the course date, you will get a full refund. If you cancel with less than 10 days' notice, or once the course has been confirmed, the full course fees are still due. We will however endeavour to get you onto to a future course as and when we have a spare space. Although this cannot be guaranteed and will usually involve you being offered the place at short notice, we have a great track record of making sure people get their training – even it takes a bit of time.
