First experiment with Adobe Premiere Rush for quick video editing

My first video in Adobe Premiere Rush CC - knocked up in 10 minutes.

I'm quite intrigued by Adobe's new video editor: Rush. Premiere Pro, while an industry default in many places, is almost willfully obscure as to where it hides some features, and is often a industrial press being used to crack a nut for many journalistic purposes.

Rush is more like iMovie on steroids - it has much of the same ease of editing, but more flexibility. Oh, and it's cross platform, and project sync cross-platform. I've just started playing with it, with an eye to starting the City module I teach on multimedia with this, and then moving up to Premiere Pro next year.

This was knocked up in about 10 minutes over my morning coffee, on my iPad, using some faintly dodgy phone footage shot in a dimly-lit church on the weekend.

That's not bad for a video doodle. I need to explore this more.
