(MUSIC). Hi. I'm Ashley Kennedy. Welcome to Commercial Editing with Final Cut Pro X. In this course, we'll be taking a project-based approach to cutting a commercial, from concept to creation.

Designing creative montage segments with plenty of flair. But always connected to our central brand messages. We'll also take a look at adding some creative effects. And finish by bringing everything full circle to deliver a polished product to the client.
