FILM 2701 Film Editing (Sen-I Yu): Projects

OER for Professor Sen-I Yu Spring 2020

General Project Information

All projects must be edited using Premiere Pro CC. If you have access to CC outside of school, you must bring your projects in progress on an external hard drive to class each week. If you have a Creative Cloud license and a laptop, you may work on Premiere Pro CC as long as you bring your projects in progress on the laptop to work on in class. Premiere Pro CC is not available in our editing labs.
