A few years ago, Norman Hollyn
and I created a new video podcast called 2 Reel Guys
. It talks about filmmaking, without talking about technology... which means we focus on story and craft.
Well, thanks to the generosity of Avid Technology
, we have funding to create twelve new episodes; which we are shooting starting Wednesday this week.
If you haven't visited the website, check it out here: www.2ReelGuys.com
. Think of it as going to film school, with classes that only last eight minutes.
If you want to learn more about our second season, sign up for the 2 Reel Guys newsletter on the 2RG website
Directing comedy, fight scenes, music videos, actors, casting, picking locations, creating a killer first cut - we have a GREAT line-up of new titles that I can't wait to share with you. More soon!
WE HAVE A NEW IPAD APP!
Thanks to the folks at Anywhere Education, we turned our Final Cut Pro X training into an app for the iPad and iPhone. There are two versions - one free and one paid. We chose Anywhere Education because of their outstanding reputation in mobile education.
The challenge for me was to make our training readable on smaller screens. (There's no sense watching training if you can't read the screens.) Now, with the new Retina Displays, screen shots are crisp and legible. You can be using FCP X on your computer and watching the training on your iPad.
If you have an iPad or iPhone, download the free version and take a look -- http://tinyurl.com/LarrysFCPXApp -- if you like it, please write a review!
Now you can take our Final Cut Pro X training anywhere. This is very cool and we are very excited.
