Editing for Social Media to Stand Out
Starts June 8
2 sessions: Saturday-Sunday, June 8-9, 10am-4pm
Every day 63% of social media users are watching at least one social media video of some type (branding, info/entertainment, and “just because”). According to internet networking solutions leader Cisco, that number will quadruple by 2020. To help make sure your video is ready for—and stands out on—social media, this hands-on class covers common editing tasks as well as social media-specific tips and tricks including:
- Editing with proxies and mixed resolutions
- Multi-camera editing in Premiere
- Adding text, captions, and motion graphics to your video
- Editing audio, including acquiring and using stock music
- Color correction using Lumetri Scopes
- Exporting with Media Encoder for multiple social media platforms
- Uploading to YouTube, InstaGram, and Facebook
There will be ample time in class to practice edit a short social media video from start to end as well as discuss soft topics relevant to creating social media assets such as:
- Effective communication with producers, creative directors, and clients (being clear about expectations)
- Post-production workflows and schedules
Prerequisite: students should have basic Adobe Premiere Pro and After Effects experience.
Tuition: $235 regular/$175 member/$130 low-income
