Description

For those without hours to spend who are looking for a quick, crash-course in FCP X.  This is just the beginning! In this class, we’ll dig into Final Cut Pro X. We’ll start the editing process and walkthrough the basics of organizing and ingesting your footage, using keywords, creating events and new timelines, and pulling initial selects from 3 categories: audio selects (crafting the story), associated video (portraying the story), and B-roll selects (advancing the story). This class is great for anyone who wants to learn how to use Final Cut. After 20 minutes, you’ll be ready to start editing in Final Cut.  

Then, select a person, place or event in your life and create a short, 1-minute film about it. You'll learn about selecting the right clips to tell your brand's story, editing in the timeline, adding effects and color correction, and how to output final formats. In under an hour you'll have everything you need to tell your brand's story.
