Foreword
Why I wrote this book
Jarle Leirpoll, Photo by Polina Sudokova

Its been bothering me for a few years that there were no


really advanced books on editing in Premiere Pro. The
existing books tend to start from scratch and take the
reader to a certain level. That leaves no room for the really
advanced stuff.
A few years back, I read Mark Christiansens excellent book
on Compositing in After Effects. It was very hands-on and
practical, and at the same time it had the technical info that
visual effects professionals need to work efficiently in the
high-end VFX industry.
I wanted to write a book for video and film editors with the same level of practical and
hands-on info for professional editors, as well as those who want to become professional
editors. My assumption is readers are already familiar with the basics of Premiere Pro
software, though there should be new and useful information here for editors of all levels.

My sincere thanks to:


Everyone who has given me permission to use their footage, and to those who shot and
created specific video or stills material for me. There would be no book without you!
Grete Nordhagen, my partner in love for your patience and support. My grown-up
children Anders and Marte, and my bonus daughters Tove and Ida you have not gotten
the attention you deserve while I was writing, but you never complained.
Fredrik Johannesson (former Adobe), who once believed I would be the perfect person to
present new versions of Adobe software to Norwegians, and got me into beta testing of
Adobe software. You changed my life!
All my students. Your questions have forced me to always explain not only how, but also
why we do things one way instead of another. Ive learned a lot from that.
Immanuel Heims, for proofreading. Youve spotted hundreds of errors.
Huge heaps of thanks go to the entire Adobe Premiere Pro team who have patiently
answered my geeky questions, and a very special thank you to David Kuspa, Al Mooney
and Steve Hoeg. Other Adobe people who have helped me a lot are Max Hagelstam, Colin
Smith (former Adobe), Todd Kopriva and Kevin Monahan. Its always a pleasure to work
with you all!
