Ben Goldsmith tells stories and shares ideas through editing videos and designing motion graphics. After receiving his BA at Hampshire College in digital media production, Ben developed and created immersive media experiences for historic and scientific museums nationwide, including the FDR Museum and the Boston Museum of Science. He then schlepped over to Seattle, where he lives today with his wife. Ben now produces videos for Sparkworks Media—where he creates content for Amazon, Alaska Airlines, and other local businesses—and teaches editing at Luminous Works, the School of Visual Concepts and Seattle University. He's also the author of Adobe Premiere Pro: A Complete Course and Compendium of Features and the forthcoming Adobe After Effects: A Complete Course yadda yadda. When he’s not churning out the good stuff, you might find him bouldering, brewing ales, or teaching himself a new musical instrument. 




Barring any kind of pandemic, you can find Ben teaching Premiere and After Effects classes at the School of Visual Concept, Luminous Works and Seattle University.


Ben wrote a book. Adobe Premiere Pro: A Complete Course and Compendium of Features is available where books are sold.

One reviewer said:

"This is a really heavy, large, unwieldy book. Even with a big desk and adequate lighting, I found it difficult to go back and forth from paper copy to computer."

So there you have it, it's pretty big.


And there's another on the way. Adobe After Effects: A Complete Course and Compendium of Features will be available in 2022.
