Easily create films from your photos and videos

Making Films From Your Photos



Course Overview

We all have hundreds, if not thousands of still photographs and motion clips silently sitting in file folders on our computers, sadly neglected and just looking for that touch of motion pizzaz to make them centerpieces in the client's reception area or on your family's social media video pages. In this course I take you through the introductory lessons of learning Adobe Premiere Pro CC 2014 which are all aimed at getting every beginner up and running at a proficient level to create movies from your still and motion content.
