Kalamazoo Filmmakers Video Editing Workshop

The Kalamazoo Filmmakers Group has scheduled their next meeting on December 1st from 1:00 to 3:00 PM. Currently the location hasn’t been set but I will update this posts when one is secured. If you are interested in coming you can RSVP at the Meetup page here.

I lifted the following from the Meet Up site.

Basic editing workshop that will demonstrate the video editing software Adobe Premiere. Theory and and technical aspects can be applied to other editing software such as iMovie, Final Cut, or Avid.

Bring in footage and work on your own content! I can provide some stock footage if you don’t have any at the moment.

I like the idea of starting on the concepts of editing and not focusing on the editor itself. Because as Rhett says on the MeetUp page the knowledge is transferable to any editor. I, for one, am anxious to apply what I learn to my favorite NLE DaVinci Resolve.

Also if anyone knows of a place in Kalamazoo where we can meet please let us know in the comments. Right now we are meeting at the Kalamazoo Public Library and the rooms are very small and meeting times can be limited.  

As a side note to the MeetUp meetings I would also like to do some online meetups. So if anyone out there is interested in learning the basics or exploring some of the mid level parts of DaVinci Resolve contact me via email or through the comments of this post and I will try and put something together.

  1. I have a 9 year old daughter that loves to make videos. I was wondering if there are classes available to kids to make meaningful art so that she can hone in on her interest. She does a lot of tic tok videos where she has gotten pretty creative. It would be neat to find something for her age group so she can explore this.

    Thanks,

    Heather

  2. Heather, I am not sure about classes specifically for that age group but there are a lot of resources available that could help her take her videos to the next level. What is she currently using (software wise) to make her videos?
