Interview with Premiere Bro Sean Schools about his Adobe resource site

This episode we're chatting with the Premiere Bro (aka Sean Schools) who runs the similarly titled site www.premierebro.com which serves as a valuable resource for those Adobe editors out there.

Sean earned the nickname by being the go-to Adobe know-it-all among his colleagues and started the site in 2014. He has since fostered it into a site where editors can find hot tips on using Premiere better in ways they didn't realize, as well as keeping a finger on the pulse of the latest in Adobe news.

He currently works in New Jersey for the ad agency JK Design and in his very limited off-time gets asked to attend this year's Editor's Retreat. I don't know about you, but I would love to achieve a level of success where I get asked to go places. And not the "Sir, would you please leave?" type of request that I usually get.

We talked about how he got hooked on Premiere, how he earned the moniker "Premiere Bro", how he balances work plus life (with a family) PLUS maintaining his online presence as an Adobe expert, as well as some other kind of invasive questions.

Plus listen to Josh get irked that he's outnumbered 2-1 by Adobe users...while I was outnumbered 2-1 by Americans. It all works out.

LINKS MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE:

  • Obviously you should check out Sean's site, www.premierebro.com
  • Editor's Retreat (which is currently being held in Albuquerque, NM from Feb 2-7)
  • We also mentioned Full Sail University again which Sean attended. If you're looking for a school to check out, evidently it's got his two thumbs up.
