Giacomo Prestinari's work consists of telling stories. With moving images, he builds an audiovisual narrative thread in which the control of time and rhythm is essential. You have probably seen some of his pieces on television, in movies or on the internet, since he has worked as an advertising editor for brands such as Coca-Cola, Gucci, Volkswagen, Seat, Ikea or El Corte Inglés.

In this course, you will learn the keys to audiovisual montage and you will discover the fundamental questions that you must ask yourself when assembling your videos. In addition, he will explain the different criteria to follow when selecting one or another shot within a scene, how different types of planes work and what tone and rhythm is best suited to your assembly depending on its purpose.

You will start knowing what the work of the editor consists of, a job that, when well done, is invisible. And that is precisely where its importance lies. Then, Prestinari will talk about the three main types of assembly.

Next, you will experiment with "creative geography" and the Kuleshov effect. You will also discover how montage affects and changes the meaning of the montage of films or audiovisual pieces.

Prestinari will expose you the main rules of the assembly and will explain to you in which cases it is convenient to skip them.

You will learn that in audiovisual montage, as in other creative disciplines, the maxim of "less is more" is also applied. And you will see how the structure of a story is constructed.

Once you have learned all of this, you will get to work on your own ad with Adobe Premiere Pro, working on the timeline and learning how to create your selection. Prestinari will give you some tips to prepare your workspace and how to prepare the necessary materials to make your audiovisual montage.

You will learn to search and select all the necessary resources for your audiovisual piece, you will make a first assembly and based on it, you will make the necessary adjustments to get a good final project. To finish, you will learn to export your video properly.
