Anticipating Premiere Pro World 2016: A Chat With Richard Harrington
Are you still exploring the idea of attending Adobe Video World this year? If so, check out this short Q&A with Premiere Pro World Program Manager, Richard Harrington, who shares some insight into the program for this year.
Q: Who should attend the Premiere Pro program?
A: The event is designed for video and film professionals. Working editors have the most to gain through both the education and networking events. Other professionals and students will also enjoy many of the sessions, as they’ll get a chance to take their editing, color, audio, and graphic skills to the next level.
Q: What’s new compared to last years program?
A: We’re offering almost all new sessions this year, including some that will be announced or updated as new products are released. We also welcome four great new instructors:
- Ashley Kennedy —Video Post Production Senior Staff Author at lynda.com
- Dave Bode —Owner of BODEMEDIA.TV
- Cheryl Ottenritter—Owner of Ott House Audio
- Scott Simmons —Television, Film and Video Editor and the Creator of The Editblog
Plus we’ve added an interactive help desk where you can sit down and talk one-on-one with a guru and get specialized help.
Q:What are the top 3 takeaways you hope every attendee will get from this year’s event?
A: Our goal is that attendees have a great experience. The conference should really bring three key benefits:
- A chance to learn both new and essential skills that help video editors succeed;
- A chance to expand their professional network to help them year round;
- A personal connection to the Adobe Premiere Pro team.
Q: What is the most common mistake experienced users make in Premiere Pro?
A: Editors need to be fast and accurate. Adobe Premiere Pro has gone through a lot of changes and if you’re self-taught or using old information, you might not be using the right tool for the job. This conference can really help attendees remove inefficiencies and add speed to their workflow.
Q: What are you sharing with Premiere Pro attendees this year?
A: I’m kicking off with a deep dive on all the new features to make sure everyone can get the most from the recent update. Then I’ll explore camera tracking and stabilization, which can both improve the quality of a shot and be used for great effects. I’ll show how to create Looks and LUTs fast and easy in Adobe Premiere Pro and Photoshop. And then wrap up with a session on how to make After Effects and Premiere Pro work together best.
