About This Class

Surrealist video has always fascinated me ever since I was a kid watching creative, imaginative music videos and films.  Adobe Premiere Pro CC has a number of effects and functions that now make it possible for anyone to be expressive and dreamlike with the video editing- keeping viewers engaged and going beyond the ordinary world through simple surrealist techniques.  

In this course we examine what exactly the original Surrealist artists of the 1920s-40s did in their video art.  We cover some of the basics of the Adobe Premiere workspace, so if this is your first time working in Premiere, you won't be left out in the cold.  Then we show how those old Surrealist approaches can be accomplished in Adobe Premiere Pro. 

Students won't need any previous experience with Premiere or video editing, but they will need access to the program and some footage to work with.  I highly recommend watching the lessons first before gathering your footage.
