This course shows beginning filmmakers how to make a short documentary from footage they have already shot, and walks them from the editing process in Adobe Premiere Elements through uploading a finished movie to platforms like Vimeo or YouTube. Author and producer Jason Osder explains how the footage was shot along the way, illuminating why particular angles were chosen and how the subject matter influences the editing process. The course also covers trimming, editing to music, and adding a title and graphics, and the final chapters result in a polished, color-corrected movie with properly mixed dialog and music.
Thank you for joining me for this course. Now that we've reached the end, I want to point in a few directions of where you might want to go next for your learning. First, if it's more technical help you need inside Premiere Elements, I recommend Premiere Elements 10 Essential Training. If you're ready to graduate beyond Elements to Premiere Pro, then I recommend that you check out the Premiere Pro CS5 Essential Training. Premiere Pro is definitely a deeper program with more options.
If you're thinking more about your distribution, there is YouTube Essential Training, which will cover things like making a channel and making a page to hold your videos. And last, if you're looking for inspiration, there's a Creative Inspirations documentary series on the lynda.com Online Training Library. There are lots of fun videos here, which can give you ideas for your own work. That's why it's called Creative Inspirations. Thanks again for joining me, and I hope to see you next time.
