(music playing) Hi, I am Christine Steele. Welcome to Narrative Scene Editing with Premiere Pro. In this course, I will talk about techniques for constructing a compelling story at the scene level. I will start by looking at organizing media so that I can easily preview and organize the footage and start selecting the best shots for the scenes. Next, I will edit a dialogue scene, exploring techniques for building an ark as well as cutting on action and refining the dialogue for clarity.
We will see how to edit together a montage, to craft a scene that shows an emotional turning point or passage of time without using dialogue. We will also build a flashback scene to merge together two different time frames. Finally, I will explore several effects techniques to enhance the mood of a scene and support the overall theme. This course will show you some of the basic rules, and then you can work on breaking those rules in interesting ways to create art. Now, let us get started with Narrative Scene Editing with Premiere Pro.
