ASMP-NJ Presents

Video Post Production for Photographers: An Overview

The medium of video is becoming as ubiquitous as the photograph. Many, particularly photographers, are finding the need both professionally and creatively to learn the language of video. My goal during this seminar is to provide the ASMP community with an overview of the video post production process as it pertains to the DSLR camera.

We’ll explore the video editing workflow: From capture to ingestion, media organization to editing, and color correction/sound mixing to outputting for various platforms. We’ll also discuss the editing industry software standards like Final Cut Pro, Avid and Premier with particular attention to Final Cut Pro 7 and X. There will be time for Q&A at the end.

A brief yet demystifying overview of a very creative and powerful technical process. I hope you will join us! And please don’t forget to bring your questions!
