Professional filmmaker and artist teaches film editing. Avid, Adobe Premiere Pro etc. as a course or individually adapted.

I teach Premiere Pro and Avid Media Composer, from beginner to advanced.

In the beginner and intermediate courses, all the important basics are covered and practiced using practical applications.

The advanced courses go into finer details, such as advanced editing techniques or shed light on specific processes such as proxy workflows or colour management.

Structure:

The technical lessons are structured in 1 hour modules, using practical examples and allow time for experimentation and questions.

I also teach editing theory and creative strategies across many different genres and styles. These are less structured and are tailored to specific needs.

Open Sessions are also possible, where you may bring along a personal project in Premiere or Avid and I will offer you technical assistance, feedback or tips.

Extra information

At my location: we will work with Premiere Pro or Avid Media Composer on two Mac workstations. No need to bring anything.

Webcam: for online lessons I use Zoom. Before you book an online lesson please preinstall Premiere Pro or Avid Media Composer on your computer. Access to a stable internet connection is important.

MEDIA TRAINING WORKSHOPS (TELEVISION AND RADIO)
How to prepare for a media interview? What means should be used to fight his fear of the camera and improve his image? How to present yourself and your project in front of a camera? How to present yourself and your project to the media? Targeted content according to your project: Verbal and / or gestural communication; Seduction of the lens and / or microphone; Improvisation in front of a microphone and / or a camera; Voice & gaze; Games of one or two cameras; Chronic; Animation; Reportage; Direct radio & TV; Interview; Narration; Speech in all its forms (...) In short, several objectives: ◾ Confront your shyness in front of the microphone / camera. ◾ Understand his speech and his diction. ◾ Taming the media environment (radio / tv). ◾ Familiarize yourself with your image and voice. ◾ Manage your speaking time. Through exercises (diction, voice, presence, breathing, presentations, time management, etc.), role plays, interview simulations and familiarization with one's image and voice, the participants move at their own pace in a flexible educational framework. Note that during the videoconference session, all the notes are transcribed in the chat so that you can access them at any time when you wish. Indeed, speaking is a predominantly physical activity, which, while taking care of its image, is based on a body, a voice, a breath, a rhythm (diction) and an emotion (the imagination and the sensations ) reflecting the speaker's involvement in his speech. How to send a clear message? How to make the difference, to make an impression? Knowing how to speak, act and interact in public is almost a necessity today: your public speaking must be effective and efficient with clear, simple and powerful messages. Simple and pragmatic tools will be presented for: generating listening ● making an impression ● fostering confidence ● generating need ● motivating teams by explaining a strategy ● getting messages across within groups ● overcoming shyness by assimilating 3 CRV axes (body-breathing-voice) ● better manage disagreement or conflict. Mastered, the method allows: • improve self-confidence and stress management with the development of the speaker's fluency (verbal-bodily), his public speaking and his sense of repartee and improvisation. • to work on their ease, leadership, charisma, creativity and personal development through scenarios. * improve the characteristics of the spoken voice (timbre, pitches, intention, flow). * get your message across through your image, while gaining improvisation skills and responsiveness. Supplemented by basic exercises (diction, voice, presence, breathing, presentation, time management), role plays, improvisations and simulations. With the key word: pronunciation, diction / articulation, the sense of repartee. Statistically, the progression following these private sessions is quickly noticeable, from 2 sessions. ( study 2020). Trained in Grande Ecole post-preparatory classes & Ivy League university in the United States, specialized and has worked for more than 15 years, in Europe and North America, in the field of communication and public speaking, in renowned international public and private establishments, intervening in forums and conferences, and oriented on pedagogy and careful methodology. - Locations: Geneva - Lausanne - Friborg - Neuchâtel - Montreux - Basel - Sion - Sierre - Morges - Bienne. But currently and until further notice, only by videoconference in accordance with national recommendations on Covid. These sessions also seem to be perfectly unanimous since they have the advantages of live (example: quality of the interaction), without its disadvantages (example: loss of travel time), with additional advantages (example: of notes on the chat, which can be reread afterwards). In this context, these videoconference sessions for which you have requested me, seem to suit everyone perfectly, take place in a very optimal way and generate a certain enthusiasm (and a certain enthusiasm). That is why, at your request, I continue to offer this option. Take good care of yourself and yours! PROGRAM À la carte program: evaluated and adapted to each need.

Learn how to make documentaries and television reportages
Hello, I'm Sam! I've been making documentaries and TV shows for 8 years. I've made dozens of (short) documentaries and TV shows. My main focus is directing, research & interviewing. I can teach you everything there is to know about making documentaries. I studied documentary directing at the Royal Institute for Theatre, Cinema & Sound in Brussels and started working as director right after I graduated. The lessons will cover everything you need to know about how to make a documentary. The idea & research fase, conceptualisation of the idea, interview techniques, filming techniques, the importance of sound, the editing process and ways to fund your film will all talked about in great detail. I'm looking forward to teaching all the things I've learned over the last years so you will be able to make your own documentaries or to gather the knowhow so you could start working as a (freelance) director as well and make your living out of your love for film!
