Welcome

(music playing) Hello there. I'm Maxim Jago. I'm a filmmaker, author and trainer, working with production companies and media specialists around the world. I work with Adobe, producing and providing specialist training for everyone from TV editors to school kids. And everywhere I teach I stop with the same message. Life is simple. If you learn the basic principles everything else will fall into place. In this course I'm going to teach you those principles. While showing you how to produce high quality professional results. With the amazing Premier Element software.

We'll be wroking with simplicity and lots of fun. Very soon you'll understand the way video technology works. And how your computer makes it possible to create fantastic movies so quickly. Many people using Premier Elements are a little bit nervouse that the technology might be in control because of the complexity of the options and the unfamiliar buttons. Really,all you need is that familiarity. Once you know what everything is for you'll be editing your movies. Adding titles. Setting up transitions.

Tweaking special effects and sending your creations direct to DVD or even to the Internet. I hope you enjoyed spending a little time with me and discovering all that Premier Elements has to offer. By the end of this course you'll be confident enough to teach your friends and ready to create some movie magic.
