Everything I have done in video has been self taught. I have been out of school since 1996 and when I graduated we weren’t worried about having to deliver motion or content for digital platforms. I decided motion was a skill set I needed to master for my business. That being said, I don’t edit. Editing video is a talent that I don’t completely have the patience or skill set for. I applaud anyone who can do it well! Karlyn Michelson is my go to editor, but sometimes due to availability or budget I work with client supplied editors and a couple of other people. We talk and work together but I am not the editor.
I am working on learning the editing tools and have been color correcting the videos in Adobe Premiere lately which I have been enjoying. I have grouped some links here that I found helpful while learning on the fly. I continue to learn and improve my video skills and I hope some of these resources will be beneficial!
Here’s a nice tutorial series on setting up and shooting with Canon DSLRs for video (which Karlyn Michelson produced!)
