more than ever post production professionals are required to deliver
high quality creative output with diminishing budgets and tight
deadlines. Our Final Cut Pro and Avid
training courses are
designed to give you the fast track towards employability and
productivity. Our courses include
multi-format delivery for platforms including tape, Youtube, web
streaming, DVD and Blu-ray. Courses are designed to
increase productivity and open channels of creativity by ensuring that
your chosen editing platform becomes an extension of your imagination
rather than a limitation to it. With the exception of discounted
training assignments we endeavour to restrict our courses to 2 students
per course to ensure maximum personal attention by teaching at a pace
that is in line with our student's level of experience and
Final Cut Pro Support
