Future Media Concepts Launches User Group for Adobe Premiere Pro

New York, NY – August 16, 2011 - Future Media Concepts (FMC), the nation's premier digital media training organization, today announced that it has teamed up with Adobe to offer training and discussion events for users of Adobe® Creative Suite® 5.5 Production Premium software. The free Adobe Premiere® Pro CS5.5 user group events will take place in six U.S. locations, and include presentations and Q&A sessions with an Adobe-certified instructor. FMC will also raffle off one free copy of the Adobe Creative Suite 5.5 Production Premium software at each of the events, compliments of Adobe.

"We co-created these user groups with Adobe in order to give this community of sophisticated software users a forum for learning, discussing experiences, and sharing best practices related to Adobe Premiere Pro CS5.5 and other Adobe software within CS5.5 Production Premium software," said Jeff Rothberg, president and co-founder of FMC. "This first set of meetings will address the latest version changes, hardware, plug-ins, techniques, and more. In time, the events will feature guest lecturers in many other areas of expertise."

"As more editors use Adobe Premiere Pro, we are committed to ensuring their success by supporting this type of training," said Anita Engelman, senior marketing manager for Premiere Pro at Adobe. "The Adobe Premiere Pro user group events with FMC help our customers stay ahead of the learning curve — whether they are current Adobe Premiere Pro users, or they're moving over from another non-linear editor."

The Adobe Premiere Pro user groups will be held throughout the U.S. in Boston, Chicago, New York, Orlando, Fla., Philadelphia, and Washington, D.C., each month for the remainder of the year.
