Taught by Enzo Tedeschi FCP213 will take you through some of the basics and some of the intricacies of Final Cut Pro. As with any other post-production tool true value comes from its proper use within a well-designed workflow. So in addition to a bit of "what does this button do" Enzo will more importantly be talking about Final Cut Pro's place within the larger context of a production as well as more creative editing techniques for storytelling. While this course will slightly touch on items covered in our other FCP offerings with a new prof comes new and interesting perspectives. Tedeschi is an Editor whose ten-year body of work covers drama documentary television series and commercials.
