  • 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.

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

  • Organizational Project Management (OPM) is defined as the execution of an organization's strategies through projects by combining the systems of portfolio management, program management, and project management.

    OPM is based on the idea that there is a correlation between an organization’s capabilities in project, program, and portfolio management, and the organization’s effectiveness in implementing its strategy. The goal of an organization’s strategy is the translation of its vision and mission into specific actions that will deliver maximum value to its stakeholders, including donors and beneficiaries. Achieving the strategy ensures continued growth in development results and sustainable competitive advantage. This is especially true in today’s increasingly competitive global environment, where organizations are constantly seeking ways to improve their capabilities and performance in the delivery of their strategy.

OPM is a flexible framework that facilitates the integration of all projects and programs to support the organization's development goals. This course is especially useful for anyone working in a development organization that is seeking to improve the delivery of project, program and ensure they are aligned with the strategic objectives, this course is particularly beneficial for organizations that do not have a unified project management approach and those in the process of improving or sustaining their current project management framework. The course is based on the international standard from the Project Management Institute (PMI)
