One Day Course

Classroom Based


This one-day course is designed for people with no Premiere experience. It will teach you the basic Premiere skills needed to create engaging animations and motion graphics for social media. You will create simple animations, work with sound and special effects and export them to your chosen platforms.

During the practical one day course, you will learn the skills to create compelling motion graphics ready to be exported to YouTube, Vimeo, Facebook, Instagram or Twitter. If you are looking for a more comprehensive understanding of Premiere, we recommend attending our two-day Introduction to Premiere course which is the ideal way to begin your video editing journey.

What are the five things you will get out of this course?
• Learn basic editing skills in Adobe Premiere
• Create 16:9, square and vertical videos
• Master text and shape animations
• Transitions with images and videos
• Exporting for all the major social platforms

No previous Premiere or design skills are required – we’ll teach you everything you need to know!
