In today’s visual world, simple static images don’t grab the attention of an audience quite the same way as before. Whether it be for personal or business use, impressing your followers on social media and other marketing channels may be difficult without the use of videos. Unlike static images, videos provide a higher quality interaction with your audience which can cultivate more interest and develop a larger following for you or your business!

In this course, you will learn how to acquire footage and transition video segments into a final product using a variety of editing techniques via Adobe Creative Cloud. Build your videography and video editing competencies by interacting with an experienced videography instructor and transitioning concepts into application via hands-on learning.
