I recently made the decision to completely change my vocation and work towards building a career in editing. I am hoping that this is a good place for some kindly souls to give me some starting advice.
I dabbled with Adobe Premier at college twelve years ago, (HND Photography and Digital Imaging), but haven't really used any editing software for a good ten years, (I have always been a user of Photoshop which has kept my creative mind ticking over). I recently bought a refurbished iMac with both Adobe Premier CC and Final Cut Pro installed.
I guess my first question would be should I dedicate my learning to Premier or Final Cut Pro?
Secondly, I would like to take a course but it seems like my options range from a couple of night school sessions with no certificate to a full on film school degree, with everything else in between. Are there any particular qualifications that I should definitely be aiming for? Or is it enough to just learn then do?
I know this all sounds incredibly naive, but apart from a quick browse of courses this really is the first action I've taken...
