Event description

Description

This training workshop is designed for anyone new to documentary editing (or wanting a refresher), using Adobe Premiere Pro software. You'll learn the interface, how to establish a workflow, ingest files, use tools to trim/place/move your material where you want it, incorporate still pictures, and add basic transitions/titles/effects. You'll use provided footage for practice material, on lab workstations (up to two participants per computer), and the course includes a final editing challenge for real-world experience (and an optional independent lab session on March 25, the third Wednesday). Besides this technical training, discussion and screening of documentary editing history and theory surrounds each week's topics on editing basics, effects, color, and sound.

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR

Paul Moon​

H. Paul Moon (zenviolence.com) is a filmmaker, professor and attorney whose works include short and feature-length documentaries, featured and awarded at nearly two hundred film festivals worldwide. He teaches editing at Docs In Progress and George Mason University, and manages a network of online communities at focuspulling.com and docofilm.com that keep pace with new camera technologies and documentary news. Works include "Sitka: A Piano Documentary" (sitkadoc.com) about the craftsmanship of Steinway pianos, and "Quartet for the End of Time" (quatuor.xyz) about Olivier Messiaen’s transcendent WWII composition. Moon's first feature, an acclaimed and award-winning documentary about the life and music of American composer Samuel Barber (samuelbarberfilm.com), premiered on PBS, and he is currently finishing another documentary feature about Western poetry (westdocumentary.com). His ongoing centenary multimedia works on the poet Walt Whitman are presented at whitmanonfilm.com. Moon's latest film is an operatic adaptation of Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol" (scroogeopera.com), awarded "Critic's Choice" by Opera News as a "thoroughly enjoyable film version, insightfully conceived and directed" with "first-rate and remarkably illustrative storytelling."
