Event Description

This full day of intermediate-level Adobe Premiere workshop is recommended for anyone who already understands the core competencies of the Premiere editing suite, or for anyone who has used Premiere on‐and‐off but wants better mastery of the software.

The four sections of material to be covered in the workshop are as follows:

Color Correction: Explore primary color grading, luminance correction, the Reference Monitor, Fast Color Corrector, secondary color correction with the motion trackers in CC, Adjustment Layers, white balance (including indoor vs. outdoor), skin tones, and plug-in effects like Lumetri color engine.

Audio Post-Production: Topics to be covered include interview surgery (e.g., killing long, awkward pauses), room tone, smooth transitions and the sound of a breath, noise reduction using a noise print in Audition, spectral layers for sound removal, high-pass and low-pass filters for wind, hum, and feedback attenuation; Dolby Digital 5.1 surround mixing, and creating markers for music cues.

Multi-Camera Editing: Explore multi-camera editing, including how to deal with multi-camera sequences and nested sequences, picking camera “angles” in real-time, synchronization of multiple sources with external audio, and getting multiple focal lengths from a single camera.

If time and interest permits, we will also cover:

Special Effects for Documentary: While documentaries may not use as many special effects as narrative films, there are some that can be beneficial to filmmakers who don’t want to spend money on expensive post-production fixes. This section explores special effects options and plug-ins available within the Premiere program itself including working with frame rates (slow-motion and fast-motion), eliminating flickering, making things disappear in-frame such as trade names, blurring faces, and stabilizing shots.

Please note: These sections will focus on options available within Premiere itself or its plug-ins rather than in After Effects or other programs.

II - This workshop is intended for those who already have basic knowledge of Adobe Premiere, either from prior training or real world experience.

Paul Moon

H. Paul Moon is a filmmaker, composer and video artist who edits all of his projects using Adobe Premiere Pro. Moon’s debut was the award-winning El Toro — an experimental work that explores connections between the ancient ritual of Spanish bullfights, and the passion of the Christ. Prior to El Toro, Moon filmed the award-winning documentary R. Luke DuBois: Running Out of Time, profiling a composer and visual artist who explores cultural and romantic memory. Other selected films include: the documentary Hamac Cazíim, about a punk band using music to maintain their indigenous heritage; Time Crunch, a collaboration with composer Jordan Kuspa; and Simple Machines with an original music score by R. Luke DuBois — all official selections at film festivals internationally. His newest documentaries are LowerTown Paducah, about an artist relocation program in Kentucky, and The Saxon New World, about 19th-century settlers in rural Missouri. Projects still in production include four feature-length documentaries: about the American composer Samuel Barber, cowboy poetry, Fluxus art, and the life of Whittaker Chambers — an espionage thriller. Moon is credentialed as an Adobe Certified Expert (ACE) in Premiere. Selected video samples are available at
