FILM / DESIGN / PHOTOGRAPHY PROGRAMMES
Turn raw footage into flawless productions with Premiere Pro CC. I is a program for filmmakers, YouTubers, videographers, designers and so on.
I use Premiere and Davinci Resolve but premiere is a bit easier to work in if you are not a experienced editor/filmmaker.
Create and publish printed books, brochures, digital magazines, iPad apps, and interactive online documents with Adobe InDesign CC. I use this mainly for creating visually appealing pitches. Both to agencies, broadcasters, festivals and others.
