Digital video editing training to be offered through January
The popular digital video training program the Guild offered in the spring of 2010 is coming back for an exclusive six-week return engagement for Guild members in New York.
From Dec. 13 through Jan. 22, we will offer the course nine times. Each course consists of three intensive, day-long sessions. There is no charge for Guild members.
From capturing video to posting it, this hands-on course teaches basic video production with personal camcorders and the widely used Final Cut Pro 7, a Mac-based video editing program. Taught by CBS News veteran Jim Talluto, this career training is designed for news pros looking to add an important new skill to keep pace in these fast-moving times.
CWA/NETT Academy, the training arm of the Guild's parent union, the Communications Workers of America, designed the course and is providing all equipment and software. Normally such training could cost $1200 to $1500. But for Guild members in good standing – and only for Guild members in good standing – it’s absolutely free.
In the past, some employers have given employees paid time off for this training. See if yours is one of them. Otherwise, students will have to use their own time for the three-day sessions, some of which will be held on weekends. Please do not sign up for a course unless you plan to be there for all three days. All sessions will be held from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Guild’s office: 1501 Broadway Suite 708, between 43rd and 44th Streets.
Hurry! Class sizes are limited to just eight students. To sign up or to see a schedule of training sessions and other details, click the link below.
