I asked loads of questions and Alex knew exactly what I meant, even if I had no idea what I was asking. Great Instructor! Very Thorough. I learned more tools than I anticipated!
useful with so many short cuts that will 100% help and further my career, thanks!
I loved the course design, specifically working on several projects to add variety and a sense of accomplishment when tasks were completed.
Above all, though, I have to commend John for his teaching. Friendly & easy-going, he set the right pace and made what might have been, in other hands, rather dry material, into a fascinating journey.
Absolutely brill, very professional and knowledgeable. Students, staff and myself were really impressed.
Non-competitive, calm environment. No assumption we had prior knowledge. John Was really informative.
Amazing course. I have not enjoyed a training course as much before.
Good course structure with good learning objectives. Very attentive and clear instructor.
A really worthwhile and excellent 3 days.
Alex was fantastic - felt like I knew the training I was getting was from someone very knowledgeable and experienced.
This really was an excellent course - I loved it.
Lots of opportunity to review what we'd done. Trainer always ready to re-explain if required.
It was easy to ask questions, and most of the time questions were answered before needing to, very informative class.
Rory was a great teacher, I really enjoyed learning the FCP software. It was a really insightful and enjoyable few days, I'd definitely come back and do more training with Soho Editors!
The best thing about the course was learning the proper process and functionality behind the tools. They were all tools I have used before but understanding them properly was excellent.
Expressions were a massive highlight.
Very hands on training, went through a logical structure to learn all the fundamentals of Adobe Premiere Pro.
Final Cut Pro X 100: The number of edits we did, and the balance between guidance and experimentation was excellent
DaVinci Resolve 101: Good pace, small class.
Avid MC101: Really informative. Mike was really helpful about going off topic to help with areas not directly covered with the course.
Premiere Pro Introduction: Insightful, industry knowledge with a friendly and approachable delivery.
After Effects Bundle: Training was easy to understand and follow. I loved the training on 3D and motion tracking
John was an excellent tutor. Very patient... great communication and obviously very skilled and knowledgeable with Cinema 4D. I was very pleased with the entire 3 days tuition.
I recently took part in the online ‘Introduction to Premiere Pro’ training run by Soho Editors and went from total novice to putting together a video with effects in just a few hours. The training was superb: informative, hands on and also fun. I must also say that the admin team that handled my initial query and booking were also very helpful and gave a great impression of what was to come with the training. My Tutor was extremely professional and great at sharing Pro Editor tips with me but understood that I was a total beginner and gave me ample opportunities for questions, practice and learning from my own mistakes. The fact I could do this training online and from a distance was a joy and privilege and the cost of the course was excellent value. This training from Soho Editors has sparked a genuine love for using Premiere Pro and I can’t wait to do further training with them very soon. If you are looking for training in Premiere Pro, Soho Editors will equip you with the skills to get you started, inspire you with editing ideas and give you the confidence to unleash your creativity!
