Introduction to Video Editing
May 27 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

COVID-19 is a day-to-day situation and the Arts Council Windsor & Region (ACWR) will be closed and postponing/re-programming programs/exhibitions (between March 17th 2020 – June 2nd 2020).

Our first priority is the health and safety of the Windsor-Essex community. Global public health guidance indicates that the more quickly the world responds to a pandemic, the better off the outcomes.

At current ACWR will be moving the workshop Introduction to Video Editing (May, 2020) online. Updates will be made to this event listing as we confirm details – the event will be free, or by donation.

Thank-you in advance for your patience.

This workshop will teach video editing skills, including an introduction to different softwares and streaming platforms commonly used for the documentation and distribution of video art, documentation and performance documentation. Instructor Imogen Clendinning will go over the nuances of different video formats and codecs, as well as, basic video editing tools using Premiere Pro. This workshop will give participants a knowledge base and skill set to better prepare them for building a professional presentation of their art practice through video.
