From the instructor:
The final Cut Pro class being offered by the News Guild of New York, and in conjunction with the CWA/NETT Academy, is a three-day, 21 hour course designed for industry professionals who need to retool to be competitive in today's labor market.
This is a hands-on course that teaches the tools and techniques that make FCP 10.4 one of the best editing tools used in our industry. Since each day builds upon the next, It is imperative that there be no lapse in attendance.
Each participant will train with the newest equipment and up-to-date software to learn basic editing functions while becoming familiar with the user interface, media management, importing, and advanced features such as effects, titles, and color correction.
To understand how FCP works, we will work through 6-7 video projects where media is provided, but at the end of the course each person will participate as part of a team to produce a video project, shot in the field, and edited in the classroom. All video and sound equipment is provided.
This class is open to NewsGuild of New York members only.
