Aspiring and experienced media producers can find classes to increase their skills at the Media Center. Hardware, software, and production values are covered by experienced instructors in a relaxed environment. We highly recommend that you start with our free hour-long Meet the Media Center & TV Studio Tour .
Get the knowledge and experience you need to tell your video stories using Adobe Premiere, one of the most powerful and versatile editing tools in the business. In this eight-hour class, you’ll learn the basics of Premiere and of video editing and get hands-on time to practice and explore this widely used program. With class size limited to eight, each participant can count on individualized instructor help. We’ll provide raw footage and everything else you need to try out your new skills. Some previous experience with any other video editing (with Final Cut, iMovie, MovieMaker, etc.) will be useful, but is not required. Class includes 3 months of classroom computer access.
