Filmmaker Maxim Jago shows how to refine the edit and add creative transitions for a video electronic press kit (EPK).
(marimba music) - [Voiceover] Hello there, I'm Maxim Jago, and welcome to EPK Editing Workflows 02: Creative Editing and Fine-Tuning. This course is part of a six part series that breaks down producing content for a music video EPK using Adobe Creative Cloud. Producing a professionally finished video can take weeks with several layers of revision. For this series, I'll show you the techniques you will use on a regular basis to produce this kind of work.
And in the final course, I'll show you a real world example. In this course, we'll be getting to grips with some of the important creative decisions you must make working with Adobe Premier Pro. I'll start by proposing some basic principles to follow when structuring your sequence, and giving advice about staying organized. We'll take a good look at some important keyboard shortcuts that make editing easier and more efficient as well as examining different approaches to making adjustments to content on the timeline.
We'll also work with temporary effects so we can begin to get a feel for the finished look of our video without being tied to the results. Let's get started with EPK Editing Workflows 02: Creative Editing and Fine-Tuning.
In the previous installment of EPK Editing Workflows, Maxim Jago showed you how to ingest media and build a basic assembly edit from your favorite shots. Here you'll take that rough cut and fine-tune it using a number of industry-standard trimming techniques that work in just about every nonlinear editing system. You'll learn how to take your edited sequence from an assembly to a precise cut, with temporary effects and transitions that will help you nail down the final visual look of your video.
