LumaFusion for Content Creators

In this course you’ll learn how to use LumaFusion to create sharp, bespoke, and on-brand videos that stand out on social media. Over eight exciting sessions, you'll be guided through a series of practical workshops that will empower you to use advanced editing and storytelling techniques.

Each workshop is two hours long and features hands-on instruction with Caroline Scott, a media trainer and social media expert who has helped news organizations, marketers and businesses better connect with audiences online. Caroline specializes in smartphone content creation and has trained staff at a range of organizations such as the BBC, RTÉ, Falkland Islands TV and Sky News. She is also a working journalist and has shot and edited video for the BBC, ITV, Thomson Reuters, Associated Press and British Forces Broadcasting Service.

Through lectures, hands-on activity, Q&A, and peer reviews we’ll cover the following topics:

  • A dive into the social media landscape in 2021, looking at social content that stands out from the rest. We compare the editing styles and visual techniques, giving delegates an understanding of different types of social content that they can produce in LumaFusion
  • A core knowledge base of timeline editing, from complete novice to advanced editing techniques
  • Storytelling techniques for producing vertical, landscape and square videos, including how to repurpose content for different frame aspect ratios in time-effective ways
  • Cutting sequences, B-Roll, cutaways and interviews for social media audiences
  • Adding advanced visual effects and colour correction  to footage using layering in the ‘Colour and Effects’ editor, including use of greenscreen
  • Keyframing within the Frame and Fit editor and the Colour and Effects editors
  • Creating bespoke title presets and graphic presets for personalised, branded content
  • Best techniques for adding subtitles and text on video that stands out on the FB and IG newsfeeds
