Introduction and Project Overview
Hi everyone. My name is Joshua Samson. I am a filmmaker and film mentor. My current projects include a ridiculously hokey sci-fi movie called Captain Rico Skye and Forsaken Zombie Planet as well as a myriad of other client projects. In this course we are going to delve into what it takes to edit action-oriented scenes, whether for a documentary or fiction, using Adobe Premier Pro. Some of the key takeaways from watching this course include learning how to set up your action edit in Adobe Premier Pro, compose visual flow with action scenes and footage, cut on action and match action, edit to music, and fine cut your scene for delivery. By the end of the training, you will have the tools and techniques to cut together action scenes. I'm excited to work with Digital Tutors and share these techniques with you, so sign in or sign up and let's get started.
