Aimed at freelance Researchers, AP’s, Producers and Directors, this hands on course will look at popular cameras being used in production (from DSLRs to REDs) and learn how to deal with their files using various professional editing software.  At the end of the day participants will have the foundation skills to ensure the best workflow for particular projects.

  • What is the best software for you? AVID Media Composer, Adobe Premiere, Final Cut 7, Final Cut X
  • Round-tripping (sending footage to other software and back again)
  • Going to Audio software and back again.
  • Colour Grading - Da Vinci
  • Delivering files. What the broadcasters are doing now (and in the very near future)
