Introduces essential storytelling concepts and creative editing techniques for creating a narrative short film with Premiere Pro, from selecting shots to placing cuts.
- [Voiceover] Hi, I'm Christine Steele. Welcome to Narrative Scene Editing with Premiere Pro. In this course, I'll talk about techniques for constructing a compelling story at the scene level. I'll 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'll edit a dialog scene, exploring techniques for building an arc, as well as cutting on action and refining the dialogue for clarity. We'll 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'll also build a flashback scene to merge together two different time frames. Finally, I'll 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's get started with Narrative Scene Editing with Premiere Pro.
