VSU Continuing Education offers Video Editing Classes

Valdosta State University's Continuing Education department will begin offering the public the opportunity to learn to create better videos for home or professional use through the new Introduction to Video Editing course.

Courses will be held from 7:00 p.m. until 9:00 p.m. on Thursdays, October 19 to November 2. The course fee is $59 which will increase to $69 after October 16. The class size will be small to accommodate the needs and interests of individual students. After completion of the course participants will receive a certificate documenting Continuing Education Units.

The course will be taught using Adobe Premiere Elements software. Individuals will learn how to capture video into a computer from any camcorder or VCR, edit video, add titles and graphics, edit audio, add music and sound effects, and put an edited program on a tape or a DVD.

Video editing allows editors to re-arrange, modify, and make additions to recorded video segments to create a better production. Computer-based editing software makes this capability available to both professionals and home video users.

The class is taught by Bill Muntz, Director of Public Services at Valdosta State University. Muntz has thirty-seven years of active experience in personal and professional video production including instructional programs, informational programs, spots, lectures, panels, demonstrations, talk shows, music programs, sports, documentary, and stage shows.

Courses offered by VSU Continuing Education include a variety of computer classes, Introduction to Voice Editing, Fly Fishing, Southern Style, as well as over 200 online classes.
