LEARN industry standard WORKFLOWS

With the Technical Workflow (for Premiere Pro) bootcamp you can transition from self-taught to professional workflow by learning the technical knowledge and step-by-step workflow professional Assistant Editors use to prepare a project ready for crash-free editing in Premiere Pro.

 

When you start out video editing, YouTube feels like the fountain of all knowledge. You can find out how to do tons of effects, how certain edits are done, keyboard shortcuts etc. Life is simple and your Premiere Pro workflow is to just pull your assets in and start cutting. But when you start working in a professional environment everything changes.

Assets are handled in a particular manner, codecs become life or death, and all the workflows you taught yourself at home aren’t relevant anymore.

 

 

WHEN YOU START VIDEO EDITING PROFESSIONALLY, YOU’LL BE EXPECTED TO HAVE A CERTAIN LEVEL OF TECHNICAL KNOWLEDGE

At the risk of sounding obvious, when you progress through your video editing career the quality of the films you work on gets better. As the quality of the films get higher, so do the complexity of your Premiere Pro projects. This means if you’re not handling assets correctly and using correct technical workflow then Premiere Pro can become slow and unresponsive, or worse, crash.

That’s why when editing larger projects for online or broadcast, there are rules for Premiere Pro workflow that every editor should follow. When followed, these rules:

  • Prevent Premiere Pro and other NLEs from crashing
  • Prevent playback stuttering
  • Ensure super-fast software interactions
  • Enable Editors to share projects safely
  • Enable Editors to work on someone else’s project hassle-free
  • Ensure compatibility with different software and hardware
  • Ensure the editing software is stable with media based on servers

These are critical when working in a professional environment.

The Technical Workflow (for Premiere Pro) training module teaches you those rules, as well as some of the important video editing terminology used in these situations. Once understood, you’ll be equipped to start working as a professional Assistant Editor within Premiere.

If you were to learn everything taught in this module on your own, or you were hoping to be trained by an employer, it would take around three months of learning. By taking the Technical Workflow module you can condense all of that learning into one day, freeing up the next three months with your next employer/client to network and impress, getting you closer to editing bigger, better projects. If you think about it, an employer is going to be more impressed and have greater trust with an editor who knows their stuff from the start, than one they have to train up. This means they’ll put you on better work sooner.

 

“So, how much does all of this cost?” I hear you ask. This class will be available for the incredible rate of £299. If you get hired as a freelance assistant editor you should earn this money back in 2 days!

 

Enrolment is only open for 5 days and there are only 10 spaces available, so hurry!
