John was an excellent tutor. Very patient... great communication and obviously very skilled and knowledgable with Cinema 4D. I was very pleased with the entire 3 days tuition.
John was brilliant - thoroughly enjoyed his training and thought he was incredibly talented.
My trainer was excellent, patient and comprehensive. He was very helpful when I had questions or got lost
The course was absolutely amazing in every aspect - thorough, detailed, informative, and Matthew was an outstanding tutor who made the course interesting and fun. Never a dull moment!
Very detailed and easy to follow, didn't think i would take so much away from the experience but I ended up learning a lot.
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!
Soho delivered great online course. Informative, well prepared and to AVID's specification due to MC certification.
I booked and attended a bespoke three day course with Soho editors. Before starting the course I was in touch with my instructor and was able to explain a little about my previous experience and about the kinds of effects that I wanted to be able to achieve on Adobe Premiere Pro and After Effects. The course itself was well structured and John the instructor was an excellent teacher that was very much able to adapt when I asked questions and to work at a speed that suited me. Overall, I would highly recommend Soho Editors.
Thank you to John Williams for the 3Day Introduction to Adobe Premier Pro training.
I learnt everything I aspired to and can’t wait to put it to use and look forward to doing other courses in the future. And thank you Soho Editors for the great editors and FX specialists you have provided over the years.
