In this workshop we’ll be working with Adobe Premiere Pro editing software to introduce the basics of narrative and non-fiction editing. Instruction will be focused on beginning to intermediate editors, but all skill levels are welcome. For the first hour we will work toward an assembly edit of an interview for a non-fiction film and a rough cut of a scene from a narrative short film (media will be provided). Editing concepts and software features will be introduced and explained as they are encountered during the editing process.

Each participant will have their own workstation and can actively follow along throughout the process. During the last half hour of the workshop participants can choose one of the sequences (narrative or non-narrative) and can continue putting some polish on them while I assist and answer questions.

This workshop will be led by Ethan Murphy, Media Production Specialist with assistance from Matt Lennon, DLA Arts Technology Assistant.
