Well I’m officially into my fourth week of this semester. I’m only about a fourth of the way done and the time has moved so fast. You may have been wondering what I’ve been up to and what my classwork has been like for this media production class.
The simple answer is a ton of homework. The more detailed answer is doing chapters out of a video editing workbook and practicing in Final Cut Pro. The workbook is mainly about trying to answer the questions about a production topic in a bubble-in style. I’ve just been trying find the energy to do them all, but I’m getting there.
If you’re unfamiliar with Final Cut Pro, it is a video editing program. It seems to only be available on a Mac computer currently. As someone who used only PC laptops their whole life, I’ve only just started to use it. It seems so complex with trying to navigate all of the tools and features of Final Cut, but I think I will get better at it. I think just a bit inexperienced. I did do some work in Adobe After Effects back in high school, but haven’t gotten to refresh myself on those skills since. Regardless, I’m sure I can get the hang of it later.
Overall, it has been a been a hectic few weeks. I think I’m starting to get in the flow of things. I know that it’s going to be a ton of work, but I think it will pay off in the end.
