In CSV Workshop Space

This workshop will aim to increase the efficiency of your editing in Premiere Pro. It is best suited for those just starting out in editing (1-2 years of experience or less) and want to make their workflow more efficient using different tools and keyboard shortcuts. We will also discuss best practices in media organization and how to become a more confident editor in indie filmmaking. Participants will be provided with editing hardware and software but are encouraged to bring their own laptops with Premiere if possible. This workshop will be both Mac and Windows friendly.
