Basic Editing in Premiere | New York – November 9, 2019

Basic Editing in Premiere

New York


Basic Editing in Premiere

This course is ideal for people who are looking to learn the basics of editing in a Premiere based workflow either because they want to learn how to edit and don’t know where to start or maybe they are a new director who just wants to be a little knowledgeable. This course will teach people the basics of the process from ingest to the final cut, and hopefully allow them to avoid pitfalls that beginners tend to run into. This is not a course on how to edit but rather how to use the tools properly to get the edit you want.

What this workshop will cover:

  • Hard Drives/File Types/Codecs
  • Timeline Setting
  • Basic Color Grading
  • Scratch Disks/Ingest Settings/Proxy Generation
  • Sound Syncing in Premiere

Space is minimal, so if you’re interested in this workshop, register before the available spots fill up!

Dennis Ragone is a freelance editor for 4 years. He currently also works part-time as a teacher’s assistant at the CUNY Hunter College Film Program. 
Dennis self-taught himself Premiere and booked his first project (a feature-length film named “In Case of Emergency” in his final semester at Hunter College. Balancing schoolwork and a feature-length job taught him that editing is much more than instinct on when to cut. 

After graduating from the Hunter College Film program in 2016, he has worked on several different projects including, music videos, corporate content, short films, and social media content. Although every project is different, one thing remains the same. If you know how things work, you can let your imagination truly run wild, which is what editing should be all about.
