information on our blogs.

Premiere pro was the editor of choice for our documentary and radio advert the reason we chose
premiere pro was because it was the most professional and easy to use editor available to us. Prior to
this course I had no idea how to use premiere pro and had to develop my skills throughout this
production process.The software made it easy to organize footage and sound and cut them together

to stereo by using an effect on the audio fax panel called ‘fill right’.
When we had finished documentary baseball today as the high definition format which we uploaded
toYouTube audience feedback and for presentation.

your head around.This was key as we do not have the time to spend hours
upon hours learning the software.This software was also efficient in

that if you’re not using a high and computer software sometimes freezes or
missing out frames which causes defect in the production.
