Premiere Premiere Pro CC 2015 Preview

This article is part of a series of posts with tips and tricks from our producers’ experience working with Adobe Premiere Pro CC after years of working in Final Cut Pro. To read more about why we made the switch, check out this post.

As you may have heard, Adobe previewed Premiere Pro CC 2015 at April’s NAB show.

There are some really innovative new features to look forward to and we will, of course, be providing new guides once we get our hands on the update.

In the meantime, here’s a video roundup of what to expect:

  • Adobe’s full NAB presentation.
  • The company’s official blog post.
  • One feature I’m really looking forward to is trying the new morph cut that makes jump cuts look seamless, as if by magic.
  • A great rundown of CC 2015’s enhanced color correction tools.
  • Some context courtesy of Pro Video Coalition.
  • A quick overview from Dave Helmly. As well as a 30 minute feature-by-feature video.
  • And another solid overview from retooled.net.

The Trials of Spring Launches As Cross Media Event Powered by MediaStorm

The Trials of Spring, a major cross media event that tells the stories of nine women on the front lines of change in Egypt, Tunisia, Libya, Syria, Bahrain and Yemen, launched as a special event on The New York Times homepage on Sunday, June 7th: six shorts will be spotlighted over the course of six days culminating with the World Premiere of the feature documentary at the 2015 Human Rights Watch Film Festival on Friday, June 12th.

MediaStorm partnered with the award-winning team at The Trials of Spring, to design and build the project’s website and leverage the MediaStorm Platform to package and distribute the short films. We also developed a digital distribution outreach and social media engagement strategy for the online component of the project.

Join the conversation on Facebook and Twitter as The Trials of Spring reframes the conversation around women on the front lines of the Arab uprisings and poses the question, when the future of a country is at stake, do women’s voices matter?

‘Shine On’ for Shine On Sierra Leone Now Playing on MediaStorm

Shine On tells the story of Shine On Sierra Leone (SOSL), an innovative education-based cultural partnership that focuses on social development through personal transformation.

Over the past eight years, SOSL has provided 2,800 students with a highly reputable primary education, granted 7,000 women micro-loans, trained 12,000 individuals in computer literacy and 600 individuals in adult literacy, as well as launched a maternal and child health care program for 50,000 individuals.

Shine On chronicles SOSL’s evolution from a traditional charity to an organization that fosters personal development as a tool for social transformation. This unique philosophy and pedagogy has had phenomenal results–most notably elevating its primary school from number 736 in the district to number 2.

 This project was made possible with support from Harbers Studio and Cash & Rocket.
