Program description

Video Basics

Learn Premiere Pro and After Effects with your very first film and animation projects. Get to know Adobe’s industry-standard software and see how to use it together to create beautiful videos. Through video-recorded classes and practical assignments, you learn the software at your own pace. This plug&play course is for anyone who wants to learn Video basics and is a good first step to other motion design studies.

The course covers the core functionalities of Adobe Premiere Pro and Adobe After Effects. After learning the basics of film and camera settings, you’ll dig right into the software and build both technical skills and confidence, step by step. 

You’ll develop good workflow habits by choosing the right tool for the job and discover how the different applications work together harmoniously. The course challenges you with a series of video tutorials and practical exercises as you create your first film project.

Admission requirements

This course is perfect for those who are brand new to the world of video editing and motion graphics.

Are your ideas and ambition bigger than your current software skills? This course is designed to help you bring those skills up to a level where you can create a video from the ideas that you have in your head, or in your sketchbook.

To complete the course – and all course assignments – you need to have access to Adobe Creative Cloud (After Effects, Premiere Pro) 2020 or above. You can use Adobe’s free 7-day demo to start with.
