This is my first post but I've been reading through the conversations for about a week or so.
But I actually have a few questions that I thought I would pose.
First off, I was wondering what software I should be focusing on. I've used Adobe Premiere for a few years but I would still consider myself a noob when it comes to editing as it's been touch and go. My cousin works as an editor for a television network in Toronto Canada (MuchMusic) and he suggests learning Avid and only Avid. But, I also hear that I should learn Premiere inside and out. Just not sure who's advice I should listen to.
Secondly, I am from Canada and am currently enrolled at Wilfred Laurier University completing my undergraduate in Communication Studies. After completing my degree, I want to do a post graduate diploma course specifically in 'New Media' or video editing. There are a few courses in Canada that I've looked into but I was wondering if anyone knows of some good schools in the US that would offer an equivelent to a post-graduate diploma in Canada.
Any and all information regarding both of these topics would be greatly appreciated and once I get some more work under my belt, I'll gladly show it to you all. You all are so talented! Keep up the good work.
