What does it take to convert a Hollywood editor to Final Cut Pro? in this series of videos we will find out.

Greg D'Auria's editor credits include two of the Fast & Furious movies, Star Trek Beyond, Bone Tomahawk, and more.

Now, February 2021, he is starting work on a new indie feature -- and he's decided to cut it on FCPX, to see what all the fuss is about. He has never used Final Cut Pro X before, so this will be a true trial-by-fire.

Join Mike and Mike as we have a quick chat with Greg about his decision and his expectations.

We will check in with him periodically as he edits the film, and join him for a final discussion once the project is complete, where Greg will share his experience and thoughts on using FCP for feature films.
