[prMac.com] Agoura Hills, CA - Larry Jordan, internationally-renowned digital media analyst and Final Cut guru, brings three of his "PowerUP with Final Cut Studio" workshops to webinar format. Keeping editing skills sharp is critical, but finding the time to do so is hard. So, Jordan created three, one-hour webinars selected from the most popular topics in his recent seminars: "Avoiding Dropped Frames: Picking the Right Storage System," "Prepping and Working with Still Images in Final Cut Pro," and "Making Your Video Look Like Film."
Each one-hour interactive web presentation provides time for questions and answers via interactive chat. Participants can watch and listen as Jordan demonstrates each issue, providing solutions to common problems, as well as answering questions via the chat.
"I've been hearing from people all over the world who want to attend one of my seminars, but can't," said Larry Jordan, president of Larry Jordan & Associates, Inc., "mainly because travel is both difficult and expensive these days. So, I created a new series of live webinars that solves this problem. All you need is a web browser and an hour of time."
Nobody presents like Larry Jordan. Whether you are just starting out or are a seasoned pro, you'll discover dozens of tips, tricks, and techniques you can put to work immediately. In addition, Jordan is recording each session, so participants can access each webinar as a reference after the event is over. The three seminars are offered three times, across three different days in May and June, so a convenient date and time is easy to find.
