Instructor CredentialsMy name is Anthony Giunta, and I’m a feature film maker – a writer, director, producer and editor. And I’ll be your instructor for the Premiere Pro course.As a filmmaker who writes, directs, and edits, it’s a threefold blessing – because, in film, there are three opportunities to tell the story. Firstly, writing the script and refining the drafts as the development process continues throughout pre-production. Secondly, when the film goes into production and is being directed, changes can be made based on variables like an actor’s performance, settings, and so on. Lastly and most importantly, the “shaving process” where improvements to the overall flow of the story and major changes can be made – or in other words, the editing stage.Having experience working as a writer, director, producer, and editor, I realized how appealing editing work is. When editing, the editor gets to choose what is most important in every shot. In this process, depending on the shots and the order the editor chooses, the editor gives the audience the information that he or she wishes to disclose – which can also greatly affect an individual’s interpretation of the film itself.The same principles apply to editing YouTube videos or family videos: you, as the editor, decide where the audience will focus their attention at every moment.Teaching ExperienceOver the years, I’ve taught students – mostly high schoolers – the fundamentals of filmmaking in all the writing/directing/editing arenas.I’ve volunteered at a non-profit called Mighty Writers in Philadelphia, as well as worked for a semester at Project Twenty1 – accompanying students through the entire process of making a short film, from hatching an original idea through to putting the finishing touches on the final edit.Once I’ve gone through such an exercise for every step in the lesson plan, I’m confident that I’ll be accompanying you in a sound way that builds on each preceding lesson – which I believe is the best way to learn.In this Premiere Pro course, I will walk through the practical editing skills to create impactful and unique videos that satisfy both you and your audience. I believe what sets this course apart from others is that it’s taught by a produced feature filmmaker. I am someone who is ingrained in the editing process from A-Z, and I’m excited to teach you the skills which I use in my own professional environment.Course DescriptionThe best way to summarize this Premiere Pro course that I’ll be teaching is to use one word: springboard.This course will provide all the foundational tools someone can use to get started in editing, and will be taught in a fun, user-friendly way that will give you the skills you need to grow as an editor.This course is for anyone who doesn’t have any editing experience yet or who wants to learn all the basics of video editing such as adding elements, effects, and assets.
