Hey everyone, I’m proud to announce that the Palm Beach Film Society and the Palm Beach County Filmmakers, are presenting an introduction to Final Cut Pro X, with FCP X certified instructor Jeff Fortune. FCP X is a revolutionary new edit system from Apple, and it’s amazing. I’ve been using it exclusively for a while now, especially with recent updates. This is our first non-Voices of Local Film event! It will take place on April 26, 2012, from 6 PM to 9 PM at America’s Production Company in Boca Raton, FL. The address is 95 NW 11th St., Boca Raton, FL 33432, and directions can be found here. Talina Adamo Oblander of the PBC Filmmakers has a Meetup with all the information, or check out this Facebook page. The cost is $15 for members of the PBC Filmmakers, $20 for non-members. Make sure you head to the Meetup page to RSVP! We’re planning on having more workshops, including a few with the latest digital film cameras.

A look at Final Cut Pro X from both the practical and technical. We will discuss the differences in workflow from 7 to X. By dissecting some projects done in X, redone in X, or opened in X from 7, we will will learn about different the workflows that are utilized using Final Cut Pro X. From an overview of the software to specific step by steps, and of course tips and tricks . . . . a contemporary  understanding of Final Cut Pro X will be delivered.

About Jeff Fortune, Final Cut Pro X certified instructor: “I’ve  been in video production for almost 30 years, my experience is split between doing and teaching.

In many cases I develop workflows for my clients, and then fill many of the aspects of the editor role myself.”
