Leonard King is a television director and vision switcher for whom desktop editing, compositing and 3D are a bit of a hobby.

After completing a degree in Media Production and Film & Media Studies, Leonard worked in several low paying jobs and volunteered on community television before getting a break with the Australian Broadcasting Corporation. Working freelance, he has since worked on programs such as Big Brother, Good News Week, and The Fat, as well as a multitude of news/caff, cultural and sporting events over the last decade.

Leonard was introduced to Adobe Premiere and the wonderful world of non-linear editing in 1998 with a Miro DC30+ and version 5.0. The rest, as anyone who’s tried to set up their first editing system would know, is histrionics. Since then he has become an accomplished user of Avid Media Composer, Adobe After Effects and Adobe Photoshop. He is currently learning Discreet’s 3D Studio MAX.

He lives with his fiancé, Ellen, in Brisbane, Australia where he divides his spare time among his other great loves; the computer, basketball, and the motorbike.

He is a regular visitor, and occasional poster, at the Creative Cow forums.

However, if the budget doesn't stretch to new software, it is possible to create a quality handwritten text effect in Premiere, albeit using Photoshop, and a fair bit of work. In this article, Leonard King guides us through the steps. This is Part One of a two part tutorial.
