Filmmaker & Editor
Hi all! My name is Ryan Charles and I'm a filmmaker, editor and post-production nerd. I've edited 5 feature films, a web-pilot (but don't hold that against me), countless shorts/specs and a handful of video essays to date and am currently cutting my 3rd feature-length documentary. I directed/edited an indie feature in 2012, All God'sCreatures, that sold at AFM (American Film Market) and is currently available on Amazon Prime-- as is a documentary about the Dalai Lama I cut in 2016, Compassion In Action . I recieved my Masters in Post-Production in 2019 from the Feirstein Graduate School of Cinema in Brooklyn, currently contribute to both No Film School and the Frame_io Blog and am exactly the kind of person who reads the manual cover to cover.
I also happen to be a Final Cut Pro X enthusiast and it's with that in mind I have created this resource. Not only do I think that FCPX will slowly begin creeping into the indie filmmaking realm in the years to come but I also firmly believe that it is the NLE (Non Linear Editor) that NON-filmmakers are more apt to pick up and learn. The NLE of the future.
