This course is for you

Making Film Editing Easy (Premiere Pro, Final Cut, Avid)

This is NOT just another video editing tutorial. In this course I share my findings of several years of experience being a professional editor. There are many tutorials to teach you the skills and software. But there are few courses that teach you a real understanding of Editing nor do they focus on Strategy. That is why I created a course that gives you a strategy to approach every project in a more effective way. I tried to keep it very brief, if there is something you would like to understand better, or have more examples, just get in touch with me! I will be happy to help you! ABOUT ME

After styuding in Germany and Spain and moving to Colombia I worked myself into the advertising industry through editing and lately doing more commercial directing work.

If you want to know more or have questions, please contact me! Cheers, Thomas
