Day one of my course with Jamie at Manhattan Edit Workshop. We started by introducing ourselves. Looks like people in the audio and TV industries want to get out of those fields and into editing.
The FCP shortcut of the day that I didn’t know, or forgot a long time ago: Control-W closes a tab in a tabbed window.
The ‘craft of editing’ thought for the morning was: ‘Try to imagine what the movie of your day would be like. What shots would you need to get to illustrate what you do, how you feel. How would those shots go together. Where would the jump cuts be?’ – That’s assuming the film would not be Andy Warhol-style 24 hours long.
