Learn In Weeks What I Learned In Years.
Video editing is an art form. Just like cinematography. To know how and where to cut, as simple as it may sound, is to become a natural in finding the perfect pace and rhythm for your piece. And this might take you years to learn.
Let me save you time (and money) by sharing with you invaluable tips that only experience can teach you. I wish i had access to this kind of courses when i first started out, but you know it was the early 2000s and we could barely text each other back then.
18 years of technological advances later and the world can now stream 360 degree videos live on mobile devices. Therefore technology was able to bridge the gap between our physical and chronological realms. But one thing all this tech can’t create for you is this… Time.
Despite the astronomical advances in high-tech gear, people today have less and less time on their hands. Sounds counter-intuitive but it’s true. As a result, people are glued to their screens all the time like their lives depended on it.
I’m sure i can find all this info online for free!
Time. Not money, or information, or properties. None of these matter if we don’t have time for them. Time is the most valuable asset these days, hence my online course on How To Become a Master Video Editor With Final Cut Pro 7 will save you precious time researching the internet, reading manuals, finding books, and learning the ropes.
You can find small parts of it, not all of it, and certainly not all in one place. There are things books can’t teach you. If you’re a visual person like me you want to see things, move and happen in front of you. That’s how i learn. Books also can’t teach you from trial and errors which took me years and years of real life experience to learn from.
What Makes This Course Unique?
One more thing before we head into the actual course: There is not one, you read this right, NOT ONE online content that teaches you how to operate FCP7 AND the business side of video editing together. This 2 in 1 approach is what makes this course so unique. This course on how to become a master video editor with Final Cut Pro 7 includes backstage tips, editing room dynamics, client communications, freelance and employee tips, project management tips and how to manage deadlines, and much.. much more!
Why FCP7 and not FCPX?
First let me say that FCPX is a fantastic editing software, don’t get me wrong i have nothing against it at all. But you know the famous saying: If it ain’t broken why fix it? Everything i learned about video editing i learned on FCP7. FCP 7 is the last of the tribe since nearly a decade of innovation at Apple before the company decided to re-write the software. Consequently and for the many of us who felt left behind, FCP7 was, and still remains, a solid go-to software when you feel like re-learning what you already know.
Some editors don’t have time to re-learn a software. Some feel the new X is too heavy on their system. Others reported that it is somewhat complicated compared to its predecessor. I, for instance, am not a big fan of the new timeline and much prefer the old school (still used by Premiere and Avid by the way), simpler and more intuitive timeline.
