Skill Level Intermediate
There's nothing like a good, effective story, and fortunately, it's easier to recognize one than it is to create one. But if you follow the guidelines in this course, you will be able to harness your footage and combine the elements in a way that will be effective, that you will enjoy, and that hopefully will make your audience laugh or cry or be deeply moved, and that's how you will know your story was effective. If you'd like to learn more about Final Cut Pro, Premiere or Avid editing applications, you can find Essential Training classes on lynda.com.
You can also learn about Final Cut Pro from my book, Apple Pro Training Series: Final Cut Pro X, which is the certified course for the Apple Authorized Training Centers worldwide. And the book you'll need to study to become Apple Certified on Final Cut Pro X. And if you're a hands-on person, I invite you to join me for one of my in class training sessions. You'll see the list of those classes and dates on my web site revuptransmedia.com. It's been my pleasure guiding you through this process.
I look forward to seeing some of your stories soon.
