On Wednesday 23 May in Sydney, the ASE held its ‘Premiere Pro, Tips and Tricks for Professionals’ session at the Australian Film Television and Radio School. A big thanks to convener Karen Joseph, and Adobe Premiere instructor and editor Bamdad Erfanian, for organising this event. This was an ‘under the hood’ look at how Premiere Pro works at its best, hardware setup, software configurations and editing workflow to name but a few topics covered.

Bam has invaluable working knowledge of the software – and he guided us through the lessons he has learnt setting up big and small projects. As this was an event held by Editors and not Adobe, there was no holding back on the pitfalls of the software, as well as its merits. Coincidently, Jon Barrie, Adobe’s strategic development manager, was in the audience, and was happy to field questions and submit any niggles directly with the software developers.

While events of this kind are usually Member-only, this one was open to non-ASE Members too, and the Guild was happy to welcome others and their feedback to this great session.


Do you ever feel like you're using Premiere Pro the wrong way?

Does it often give you troubles with media, frame rates, exports?

Come along to discover a better way to use Premiere Pro.

Bamdad Erfanian (Adobe Premiere instructor and Editor) will take you through a myriad of topics - from data wrangling different camera formats, hardware requirements, project set up, to output - showing you how to avoid pitfalls in a program with so many options.

It's happening Wednesday the 23rd May from 6:30 - 8:30pm

at the AFTRS theatre in Sydney, The Entertainment Quarter, Moore Park
