SILVER SPRING, VA – Intermediate Adobe Premiere Workshop – FEE $200

Docs In Progress welcomes back Adobe-certified expert Paul Moon for a full day of intermediate-level Adobe Premiere workshop. This workshop is recommended for anyone who already understands the core competencies of the Premiere editing suite, or for anyone who has used Premiere on‐and‐off but wants better mastery of the software.


The workshop will cover:


Color Correction: Explore color correction, including primary and secondary color grading, luminance correction, understanding the Reference Monitor, Fast Color Corrector, Three-Way Color Corrector, Adjustment layer, White balance (including indoor vs. outdoor), skin tones, and third-party plug-ins such as Magic Bullet.


Audio Post-Production: Topics to be covered include interview surgery (e.g., killing long, awkward pauses), room tone, smooth transitions and the sound of a breath, noise reduction using a noise print in Soundbooth CS6, high-pass and low-pass filters for wind, hum, and feedback attenuation; Dolby Digital 5.1 surround mixing, and creating markers for music cues.


Multi-Camera Editing: Explore multi-camera editing, including how to deal with multi-camera sequences and nested sequences, picking camera “angles” in real-time, and synchronization of multiple sources with external audio.

If time permits, we will also cover:


Special Effects for Documentary: While documentaries may not use as many special effects as narrative films, there are some that can be beneficial to filmmakers who don’t want to spend money on expensive post-production fixes. This section explores special effects options and plug-ins available within the Premiere program itself including working with frame rates (slow-motion and fast-motion), eliminating flickering from PAL footage, and making things disappear in-frame such as tradenames, blurring faces, and stabilizing shots.


Please note: These sections will focus on options available within Premiere itself or its plug-ins rather than in After Effects or other programs.
