Final Cut Pro X - Media Management Wednesday, January 10, 2018 - 7:00pm

Keep organized as you collect media for your production, so that editing can be a creative exercise. Tips on staying organized for fiction and non-fiction pieces, as well as some advice on the types of shots to collect and how to shoot them. By using the organizing tools available in Final Cut Pro X (events, tags, markers, stars), or even pen and paper, you can focus on the story you are telling instead of searching for the elements you need (or wondering if you even have them). Investing some time in staying organized will save you lots of time when you edit, and make it easy to try variations as you think of them. Lecture format w/overhead. Feel free to bring your own laptop. Class can accommodate 10 people.
