A team of LumaFusion Certified Trainers launches in May a series of video editing training workshops for social media, mobile journalism and advanced filmmaking.
The LumaFusion Certified Training Courses will launch in the United States on May 10, 2021. Each course consists of a series of eight in-depth, tailored live virtual workshops delivered via Zoom conferencing over the course of eight days. Each session is approximately two hours long and includes a detailed curriculum covering all aspects of the LumaFusion workflow in each respective category. Workshops are also designed to cater to all varying levels of expertise – from novices and aspiring content creators to advanced filmmakers.
Registration for the U.S. workshops is available immediately, but the initiative is going to be available in other places, too. The LumaFusion Certified Training Courses will launch in Europe and the EMEA region later this Spring in order to accommodate participants from varying time zones. Dates for future workshops will be announced in May 2021, says LumaTouch.
