1. Application - Professional Editing in Final Cut Pro 7

The Writers Guild of America, East, with the generous assistance of the Consortium for Worker Education, is pleased to offer three free courses to members who want to learn more about Final Cut Pro. Each course will be taught in the state-of-the-art facility at the Borough of Manhattan Community College.

Final Cut Pro is at the center of digital media production. It empowers creators to store and edit their material in a format that has been very widely adopted. Apple recently released a new version of the software – Final Cut Pro X.

We will offer three courses in FCP X – one introductory, one more advanced, and a third that will be either, based on member interest. Each course will include 24 hours of instruction in the classroom, probably in back-to-back 8 hour days. Depending on students’ schedules, these classes will probably be offered in January, February, and March 2012. Note: the WGAE will make Flip Cameras available to students enrolled in these classes.
