About MEWShop’s Six Week Intensive Course
The post-production industry is highly competitive, and knowing the industry standards – Premiere Pro, After Effects and Avid Media Composer – is critical for success. MEWShop offers in one comprehensive, six-week course all of these editing applications, taught by certified instructors. No other program guarantees more time in the classroom or more working on one’s own computer. The Six Week Intensive Course will take students through each program as they work on various real-world projects to illustrate the distinct strengths and nuances of each NLE. MEWShop’s Six Week Intensive is also the only course of its kind that allows students to choose the footage they want to edit on the platform they prefer.
Beyond the creative and technical aspects of editing, a portion of the Six Week Intensive Course also is focused on the best strategies to secure a job once the class ends. Students will draft cover letters and resumes, which will be refined over the span of the class, and also discuss with instructors interview strategies and job applications, as well as how to appropriately set rates and find the right work for each graduate’s unique interests.
The next installment of MEWShop’s Six Week Intensive Workshop begins on January 22, 2018 and held Monday through Friday from 10AM – 5PM. Early bird pricing for this class runs until January 20, 2018.
