How to Get the Most (Premiere Pro) Out of P|PW
In a world... where post and production are cleverly separated by a vertical line, one Bro must rise above NLE objectivity to become the biggest Premiere Pro fanboy NAB Show has ever known.
Premiere Bro is excited to be partnering with Post|Production World on several levels. First, is as a first-time attendee and Premiere Pro training enthusiast. Whether it’s learning to navigate the event or showing me the ropes, I’m looking forward to mingling with other Premiere Pro users at P|PW! Second, Premiere Bro is attending as a “social insider” highlighting P|PW and, especially, Premiere Pro training sessions. And third, Premiere Bro will be assisting with the Hands On: Mastering the Timeline: Color Correction and Grading in Premiere Pro course. More on this below!
What is Post|Production World?
Post|Production World can appear a little overwhelming, not to mention the rest of NAB Show! (Did I mention this is my first time?) If this is your first NAB Show, then think of Premiere Bro as your sidekick—you get extra kick if you are also a Premiere Pro user! If you are a convention veteran, think of Premiere Bro as a conduit to help NAB Show noobies. Regardless of who you are, the goal is to help each other get the most of this amazing experience. Here are 7 things to get that helpful conversation going.

See the full list of P|PW University sessions here.
7. NEW! P|PW Hands-On Training—a 5-day program for intermediate to advanced attendees wanting to learn After Effects, color correction, and audio finishing techniques. These day-long courses combine instructor demonstration and hands-on practice. Sign up for a full pass or just one of the courses. NOTE: The hands-on courses are not included with the standard Post|Production World pass.
BONUS: Be on the lookout for Post|Production World raffles and giveaways, including free P|PW Session Passes! Premiere Bro will be handing out free P|PW Session Passes onsite.
Hands-On: Mastering the Timeline: Color Correction and Grading in Premiere Pro
Premiere Bro will be assisting Jeff Greenberg and Nick Harauz with the Hands On: Mastering the Timeline: Color Correction and Grading in Premiere Pro course. If you are looking to get "saturated" in Premiere Pro this year at NAB Show, sign up for this hands-on class! As mentioned above, the structure of the Hands-On course is a combination of instructor demonstration and attendee practice. Attendees will walk away from this class with a deep knowledge and experience in color correction and grading in Premiere Pro. Both Jeff and Nick are Adobe certified trainers and they each have incredible expertise and classroom presence. It’s a wonder there exists a room in all of NAB Show that can contain their combined power! (The room is N262.) Premiere Bro is stoked to be helping Jeff and Nick with this class, but just like a good lasagna, it's all about the sauce and the cheese. Still, Premiere Bro makes a good noodle.
