Joseph Palma
A Tour of FCP X

LIVA President Emeritus and Award Winning Wedding Cinematographer Joseph Palma will take you on a tour of Final Cut Pro 10.1 and how it is an amazing tool for Event Filmmakers.  People thinking about making the switch to FCP or who still haven't upgraded from FCP 6/7 will not want to miss this meeting.  He'll explain the differences between FCP X and other editing platforms and show you some cool tricks.
