Video Editing for Voice Actors

Voice on Video

Summary Summary

Peek behind the curtain and learn what happens on the other side of the storytelling magic.

In Video Editing for Voice Actors, you'll be given a client brief, VO script, and a bank of footage. Put on your Director & Editor hats as you learn to cut, colour, voice, and audio mix a commercial under the guidance of a professional. Discover what makes a cut "work" as you analyse effective editing techniques, dive into the theory behind them, and apply your knowledge to a rough, fine, and final cut.

This course is designed for students with no previous experience in video editing - but if you're already familiar with Premiere, you'll be able to jump into advanced functions and even tackle some FX. By the end of the course, you'll be navigating Premiere with shortcuts and hotkeys like a technical wiz!

Whether you want to create casual videos on Youtube or take the first steps to becoming a movie editor, this course will set you up with the fundamental theory and technical skills to start exploring.
