An introduction to Final Cut Pro
27th/28th April – Headland House 10-5pm

A course for all photographers, who wish to extend their skills base to include video editing.

Expected learning outcomes
Participants will be able to produce multimedia slideshows, edit/export video content/edit audio, and begin to use FCP as part of their regular workflow – whether producing slideshows, videos or audio podcasts.

We will also touch on other packages in the Final Cut Studio suite – Motion and Soundtrack Pro, as well as Adobe Photoshop and After Effects. For the budget conscious, most if not all workflows shown will also work in Apple’s Final Cut Express (FCE) software.

Participants will be able to produce industry standard newspaper multimedia packages by the end of the course.

The MMC, comprising a small team of multimedia reporters, camera operators and editors (10 journalists, 4 camera operators, 10 editors) produces an average of 25-30 video news and features reports per day, 7 days a week, to deadline, as well as undertaking assignments for external clients.
