Thursday, October 24, 2002 : An Interview with Michael Wohl, author of Editing Techniques with Final Cut Pro
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.
