[prMac.com] Agoura Hills, CA - Digital video editors in Scotland, Great Britain and Ireland appreciatively acknowledged Larry Jordan's editing skill and training technique during his seminar tour February 12 through 21, 2010. An internationally renowned digital media analyst, editor, director, and trainer, Jordan presented in Glasgow, London and Dublin. In London, Jordan was a featured speaker, participant in panel discussions, and workshop leader at Broadcast Video Expo 2010 at Earls Court 2.
"I love teaching this stuff," said Larry Jordan, president of Larry Jordan & Associates, Inc., "Technology changes so fast, and sometimes all the new gear and terminology become overwhelming. My goal is to help the students in my workshops and classes understand this technology so they can make better decisions and become more productive."
Jordan's February 12th 2-hour Final Cut Pro workshop for students and new users of Final Cut Pro, presented as part of the Creative Loop Student Media Festival which is part of the Glasgow Film Festival, was a huge success. Over 150 students attended his presentation.
On February 15th Jordan traveled to London to conduct a seminar for intermediate users of Final Cut Pro showcasing highly effective, but often little-known Final Cut Pro plug-ins from such companies as Red Giant Software, SmartSound, Peake Professional Systems, Square Box Software, Adobe, Digital Anarchy, UserMatic, Imagineer Systems, and others.
Broadcast Video Expo 2010 at Earls Court 2, London, began February 16th and Jordan presented several workshops on precision audio editing in Soundtrack Pro 2, creating the Film Look on the Desktop, Converting DSLR Media for editing, and Editing DSLR Media in Final Cut Studio. Plus Jordan was a featured guest panelist discussing "The Future of Digital Video" and "Where Next the Blu-ray Disc?" His seminar on "Getting Your Video to Look like Film," presented in three different sessions, had an overflowing crowd, with people leaning in windows to hear him speak. This session was so popular he hopes to turn it into a video tutorial soon.
Jordan ended his Tour in Ireland presenting two "PowerUP" Seminars in Dublin. The first seminar, on Saturday, February 20th, focused on students and new users of Final Cut Pro and covered such issues as setting up and optimizing Final Cut Pro, working with Multicam clips and new features of Final Cut Pro 7. Geared toward editors and more advanced users of Final Cut Pro, the seminar on Sunday, February 21st focused on how to work with HD, mixed format projects, archiving, video compression, and color correcting in Final Cut Pro.
