Tell your stories! We all have stories to tell. Now the tools are cheaper than ever. You've got no excuse not to get out there and make your own films. Make a music video for your friend's band, make a Public Service Announcement for a cause you believe in, make a documentary or fiction film about the things that matter to you. As far as editing, learn your fundamentals, your editing ABCs. I strongly believe in breaking the rules, but you need to learn the rules in order to break them. The more you cut, the easier it gets and the more fun it is. Each film is an adventure, and above all, remember to have fun. This is your life, if you're not enjoying yourself, you're missing the point.Buy the book: Editing Techniques with Final Cut Pro
The GL2 is a must-have for the person looking for the very best video-making experience. The GL2's excellence begins with its outstanding Fluorite lens and includes pro-level picture adjustment features found only in Canon's top-of-the-line, trend-setting XL1S camcorder.
So the time has come for mere mortals — even poor, starving artists — to produce fine-tuned documentaries, commercials, music videos, and other works of video artistic expression. It just takes equal parts desire, dedication, and creative talent.
Our next meeting will be held on Thursday, April 18, 2002.

And Don Berube from Canon USA will join forces with Focus Enhancements and Lacie to show how you can now CAPTURE WHILE YOU SHOOT by recording directly to a FireWire PocketDrive on the Canon Xl1S camera with the new portable FireStore.
