So you've taken a quick look at Premiere Pro and are completely overwhelmed by all of the tools within the software and have no clue how to start editing your first video... Or you've edited a few videos but you are simply not happy with the results!
If you're frustrated... I know the feeling! For the first few months, I battled the same problems you have and I felt like I'd never figure it out. Premiere Pro seemed so complicated and the learning curve was painful.
As a self taught video editor and almost 4 years later, I am proud to say that I am truly happy with the quality of the videos I am producing for Amazon Prime and YouTube. I wish I had this course when I first started, it would have saved me years of pain and suffering!
The reason I created this course is so you can watch over my shoulder and see exactly how I edit videos... without unnecessary jargon and complexity.
What makes me qualified to teach you?
I'm a self taught video editor and vlogger that started off like you! In June 2016, I had zero editing experience, no laptop, no students, no YouTube channel, and no presence on Amazon Prime. Fast forward to April 2020, I have;
Produced over 19 publications on Amazon Prime
Over 710+ videos on YouTube
Almost 10,000 YouTube subscribers with over 5.83 million minutes watched
Over 150,000+ students in my online video courses
Trust me, as I review my stats it sounds crazy to me too! I never expected in a million years to be in my current position with these achievements. I started with nothing... If I can do it, I am confident that you can do it too.

Let's be honest. You can probably learn everything in this course on the internet for free. Over the past 4 years, I've taught myself how to edit with online courses and tutorials.
My ambition with this course is to take 4 years of my knowledge and experience, and put it in an easy-to-follow course so you can learn in 1 week what has taken the last 4 years to learn!

You will be walked-through the process of creating a brand new project file, selecting a rendering engine for your project, and learn how to navigate the "big four" common workspaces within Premiere Pro CC.
I will show you how I organise my sequences in my project file. Each sequence represents a "vlog" and each project that I create can hold up to 10-15 sequences (vlogs).
You'll be given a practical demonstration of the function of the default effects that are attached to every video clip you will be working with in Premiere Pro. You'll learn how to manipulate and reset the basic parameters of your clips, how to make basic adjustments to audio and channel volume.
You will learn how to create an amazing vlog if you ever film at different resolutions from different sources (drones, GoPro, or smartphone). You'll also learn the most effective way to upscale your footage within Premiere Pro CC and how to automatic scale.
I will show you how easy it is to apply different LUTS or "presets" over your vlogs to make them look amazing, without any technical colour grading knowledge. I'll also show you different drone colour profiles and how to apply the correct LUT to the correct colour profile for your drone.
