Seo, the director of a romance, is at his wit’s end trying to finish his film. Editor Park has been brought in to help fix it. But it’s not your typical post-production problems of recalibrating the film’s story structure. This film is haunted.
Traversing genres between romance, horror-comedy, and screen-shared desktop video-editing tutorials, Digital Video Editing with Adobe Premiere Pro is an unexpected insider’s ride through filmmakers’ insecurities, petty squabbles, and the dangers of “fixing it in post.”
