Premiere Clip to CreativeCloud
Your mobile device is an awesome way to start working on a small visual project because you often have it with you all the time. The great part about PremiereClip is that you can shoot, edit, and upload right from your phone or tablet. The ability to edit, do some amount of post work, and quickly share it is the HEART of PremiereClip.

What started out as one lens for our production (the 4:1) has turned into more. Shooting with your iPhone 6 is so much better with great optics.
