An Introduction to Adobe Premiere: A Duke Student Broadcasting Collaboration

Partnership with Duke Arts Create & Co-Lab Roots

Taught by J. Brandon Johnson

About the Workshop

Join Co-Lab Roots, DukeCreate, and Duke Student Broadcasting for this introduction to Adobe Premiere, a film editing software that allows you to polish, revise, and direct raw footage in any video format. Participants will learn the basics of the software, review the interface, and work through exercises to get more familiar with the way the different tools work together. This class is ideal for beginners as well as people in need of a quick refresher.

Note: Premiere must be installed prior to this workshop. Duke students can download the software for free under the Adobe Creative Cloud link here. Faculty and staff can download a free trail of the software here.
