How To Create A Cinematic Look In Premiere Pro

Here's a fast workflow you can follow in Premiere Pro when you want to give your video/images a cinematic edge.

| Other Software


'Cinematic Colour' is a term that when you see the 'look', you know exactly what it means. It's a pretty cool colour grading you can apply to images/video to give it an edgy look and YouTuber Sheldon Evans has a great tutorial on how you can recreate the effect. 

"We'll go over the differences between colour grading and colour correction and how you can use them both to get the cinematic look in your footage," says Sheldon. 

Sheldon uses Premiere Pro, which is for video editing, but with so many photographers now capturing video with their DSLRs, it's a technique many may find useful. 

The following topics are covered in Sheldon's workflow video: 

  • Colour grading vs colour correction
  • The fastest way to trim and cut videos in your timeline
  • How to colour grade with colour wheels
  • How to achieve cinematic colour grading

A Loupedeck+ editing panel is used, which is a lot of fun to use, but you can still follow the tutorial even if you don't own one. 


One image can change us.

A picture, a moment can change the way we feel. Change how we see ourselves. Change our understanding and change the rules. Provoke and change history.
