I have had the pleasure of reading and reviewing Paul Ekert’s newest “How To” book, Mastering Adobe Premiere Pro CS6 – HotShot, which is an amazing collection of learning projects that open up the sometimes mysterious workflow of the application to new users. The project based approach is a great learning experience with immediate real world applications.
This book cuts through the fog and clutter to get you up to speed on using this fantastic video editing application through practical, well thought out projects that demonstrate the possibilities of this editing program.
My review at Amazon was as follows:
If you have ever struggled with Premier or want to get on the fast track to learning the application then Paul Ekert’s newest book, Mastering Adobe Premiere Pro CS6 Hotshot, is the book for you. This is a project based learning experience with plenty of help from the author. I have always been a fan of project based instruction as there is little substitute for hands on experience. Paul is also an experienced author with several titles under his belt as well an advanced user of video editing applications.
Paul’s combined experience as an author and an editor is readily apparent as he guides you through the various projects to completion. Paul will lead you through the fog thereby greatly decreasing the learning curve and get you quickly into productive and satisfying territory.
This book can be valuable to experienced users as well as novices. The technical expertise and tips shared in post production alone are worth the purchase plus you will be exposed to some industry jargon and methods that will improve your workflow and final render.
An excellent resource by all accounts.
I came to know Paul as he was exploring writing this book with PACKT Publishing and was inquiring as to my experience with them. Paul is not just a crackerjack editor and “How To” writer but is the complete package when it comes to practical use of an application like Premiere. Its always great to know how the pros do it.
If you are new to Premiere or an experienced user I believe this book will greatly benefit you and help your skills mature as an editor.
