The Digital Creative Workshop: Video will give you a foundation in video editing and basic animation with motion graphics.
The majority of this workshop is hands-on learning exercises in Adobe Premiere and After Effects.
Past experience with video editing is not necessary. This workshop is designed to be at a 101 level, so you'll get an introduction and solid foundation in Premiere and After Effects.
You will have to bring your own laptop and to purchase or download free trial copies of the two programs.
