What do actors do when the Hollywood movie machine shuts down due to Covid-19? They make a home movie of course!

Home Movie: The Princess Bride started off as an idea by Jason Reitman to raise money for the World Central Kitchen charity. It ended up being a 10 part series that is available on Quibi. Nathan Orloff had the job of stitching all the actor-shot iPhone footage together. He used Final Cut Pro X of course!

We have liked LumaFusion since its release, but now a new feature has turbocharged the iOS editing app into a very capable, collaborative editing tool.

Teaching video production skills to over 300 students in three days? No problem for Tom Morris when he hosted a mobile film workshop. Then two events happened in 2020 that made him realise that transferring shooting, editing and storytelling skills to young filmmakers can really change lives by giving them a voice in the community.

The first of a new month, so time for a roundup of the Final Cut Pro X, Motion & Compressor tutorials that we have liked over the past few weeks in June. Something for everyone!

A week later and the information from a packed WWDC is beginning to sink in. The move to Apple Silicon will bring advantages to FCPX such as speed and resource use, but what about new possibilities with new technology? 

Final Cut Pro X isn't ready for prime time? Think again. The recent series of BBC1's Have I Got News For You was post produced on FCPX. Could it handle the multiple angles of composited layers in a complex multicam timeline with a tight turnaround?  The editor James Branch details the workflow.

Show 12 on Tuesday June the 9th brings us some 'unexpected' Final Cut Pro X tutorials from Mike Matzdorff and Michael Yanovich. Both (hopefully) will be with us. We also talk about producing 3D 180 content with FCPX for The Slow Mo Guys with Daniel Fabelo.

Explosions, fire, paint, slow motion & 3D 180 - What more could you want? Daniel Fabelo runs through the Final Cut Pro X workflow he uses editing for the popular YouTube channel The Slow Mo Guys. 

Yes, even YouTuber's need a little help from their friends. Justine Ezarik, aka iJustine, has been creating content for YouTube for over a decade. Back then, Justine was mostly able to host, shoot, and edit all of her videos on her own. However, with over 6.4 million subscribers and nearly daily content, she recently decided to bring on some help.

In this new Final Cut Pro X plugin review, Oliver Peters takes look at FilmConvert's update to their set of film emulation tools. The new pack is called Nitrate.

Show 11 on Tuesday 26th of May brings us a team of editors, each have their own story on dealing with COVID19. How has the pandemic affected post production and will anything change after the restrictions are lifted?

It is a challenging time for us all, especially students trying to continue to learn. Rusty Earl decided to use Final Cut Pro X to document his local school district’s journey to teach remotely during COVID-19.

We have 10 free passes to Post Production World Online that we are going to giveaway in a sweepstake. Will you be one of the lucky 10 to win a pass to all sessions that's worth $299?
