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.

Video Editing, Motion Graphics & Animation

Freelance video editor and motion graphics artist based in San Francisco, CA. Almost entirely self-taught and has spent many hours gaining knowledge from online tutorials on sites like Udemy.

 I started my professional career in 2011 at  a San Francisco ad agency, but I was cutting video long before that. This gave me both a solid foundation for work in multiple environments, a strong technical background, and the confidence to venture out on my own. Since then, I have freelanced in offices all over the Bay Area looking for places where I can advance my own skills and knowledge, develop strategy, and further brand.  I am almost entirely self-taught and am extremely well-versed in all things post-production.  

MOTION GRAPHICS ARE EVERYWHERE! I have created content to play on television, in sports arenas, in bank branches, on the web, in emails and internal presentations, at events, in movie theaters, and on social media. I have produced work that fits within brand guidelines, while continuing to be a part of the conversation and provide input as it relates to brand strategy and video.     
    
    I understand that each project has it's own unique style and flow, and that story comes first. I enjoy exploration as well as designing with the client in mind.  I am extremely proficient in Premiere Pro CC and have extensive knowledge of After Effects and Cinema 4d.

Always looking for new, fun, creative projects, and to keep learning.
