Adobe Premiere Pro
Adobe Premiere Pro is used for editing videos, commercials, and other film, television, and online video. It is a professional and comprehensive video editing software application. Students will become comfortable or fluent in the software, and learn Shortcuts, Audio Mixing, Color Correction, Graphics and Effects, and Export Settings for various platforms.
Adobe Photoshop is an advanced digital imaging software, used by photographers, designers, web professionals, and video professionals. The app gives you the utmost power and creative control for 2D and 3D image manipulation and compositing, video editing, and image analysis. Students learn the major functions of Adobe Photoshop and will create usable assets to be imported into Premiere Pro.
**Please note: Students who submit applications later than Thursday at 5 pm (ET) on the week preceding the start date of this workshop may not receive the Adobe Premiere software in time for the first day of class, as the issuance of your NYFA ID and account set-up requires, approximately, 12 business hours.
Creative storytelling, Be a better storyteller
The key to any great piece of content is a story. Storytelling in your video will help you to engage your audience and achieve the results you want. Stories tug at our hearts. They engage our emotions. They make us feel something for the characters and allow us to empathize or imagine ourselves in their place. Creativity is how you grab your audience’s attention. Throughout the program, students will learn how to create engaging content using editing software as a tool to tell their stories.
Screening and Critique
Students screen their work for instructor and classmate feedback upon completion of each film assignment. Constructive feedback is based on the student’s application of technical and aesthetic principles learned during workshop/lecture hours, and on how well those techniques were used to achieve the student’s goals. All instructors are film, TV, and other media professionals and are active in their fields. Their feedback helps students understand what they are doing well and what they could make improvements on. This practice allows students to continually improve and make even more engaging content.
