FCG100 – An Incredible Year (feat. Cast of Regulars)

Published by:

What a pleasure it has been. 100 Episodes with some amazing guests. A year ago I set out to “get the word out”, to tell the rest of the industry about this amazing tool that I had found and frankly really fallen in love with. Yea, it had some short comings but the strengths completely outweighed the problems and I just wanted people to hear that message. However something else happened. Where as I WANTED to tell everyone what I knew, instead found that I learned from each and every guest that I had on the show. The FCPX community of editors is amazing, their knowledge and experience is varied and each and every episode I took away tid bits of knowledge that made me a better editor.

My hope is that you can do the same thing. The Grill has been an amazing experience and although I doubt I’ll have ANOTHER 100 episodes a year from now to share I KNOW there will be at least 1 a week. So enjoy this celebration and enjoy the camaraderie… Welcome to The Grill.

There are so many aspects of FCPX to discuss and you can’t talk about it without delving into the Mac OS as well. Charles Silverman and I had a lot of Skype problems one night and re-recorded a few days later… and this is what you get… Honestly, it was better the first night.

FCG097 – Allowing Mistakes to Happen (feat. Vid Price)

Published by:

Music Videos are a unique genre that have their own needs and demands from an editor. Vid Price spends about 60% of his time cutting these short bits of art in London and he has come to the realization that FCPX is definitely his tool of choice. In this episode we talk about some sorting and filtering methods that we have NEVER touched on in this show and you’ll rethink the way you search for media in YOUR projects.

When you take a good look at the new website that Premium Beat just recently released its pretty obvious that they are very much into supporting the film making community. Besides including powerful new web based features that cater specifically to editors there is the amazingly deep blog content covering all manners of involvement with the production community. This episode is MUCH more then just an add, there is genuine discovery going on here and I promise you there will be things that make you want to go and take another look at premiumbeat.com
