Multimedia Training

->> Hello everyone,

I'm looking to expand my knowledge in multimedia, specifically final cut x, motion and color. Does anyone have any workshop or places that I can take a class?

I've seen that the NPPA, Mediastorm, and a few others offer training classes, but I haven't really heard any reviews of what people thought of the experience.

I remember a few years ago, SSacademy put on a light multimedia course and that was a great way to introduce myself to the program. I'm looking to further that knowledge and not just dive into the applications blindly trying to get things that I want.


Thanks for all your help,

Andrew

->> I took CC classes from Shawn Montano, who was one of the presenters at an NPPA workshop in OK City. He knows his stuff.

I would recommend a community college class in editing, but I think many people can benefit from a workshop. I needed the class because I had no idea where to begin. Once I understood the basics, it is fun to play.

->> Andrew,

I'd look at Lynda training to start. It really is well put together and is a great teaching tool. I know I've learned several programs from their courses. It also might be easier to do in your spare time.

->> I have been looking at doing the NPPA Multimedia Immersion in May (https://nppa.org/training/multimedia-immersion)

It looks like it covers a lot of territory in a very short period.

Has anyone taken it or have any experience with it?

->> +1 For Immersion. I know quite a few of the coaches and they are awesome visual storytellers and great teachers. If you do go to Immersion you need to cheat, beg, or steal to ensure that you get my former boss, Steve Elfers, Director of Video at USA TODAY as your coach. You'd also do well to have rock stars Brad Horn or Wes Pope as your coach!

But to take a step back what you likely need more than technical training is storytelling training. Most photographers are such technical people that they pick up the software pretty easily. I went to NPPA's Advanced Storytelling Workshop and that really helped me understand storytelling on a different level. Good news is that Immersion will give you a good dose of both the technical and storytelling sides.

->> Hi Andrew!

I highly recommend the Kalish photo/multimedia editing workshop. You can find nuts and bolts training on FCX, color and motion online, but edu on how tp produce and put together a good story is a lot harder to find! That's where this workshop excels. Plus, it's a TON of fun! Everyone hangs out and chills in the evening. The contacts you make at this workshop are invaluable. I've been once as a student and twice as a volunteer...

You could also try the mountain multimedia workshop. I've never been, but I heard good things.

->> Thanks everyone! Kalishworkshop and moutain workshops look right up my alley. I've got storytelling decently down... it's putting all my footage and vision together that seems to be the hard part right now. I want to get a dose of everything. NPPA immersion also looks great.

thanks for the help!

->> There are so many newer platforms now including Sony when it purchased Vegas Video.

For some reason, Apple wasn't at NAB last year, where FCP ver.X from what I heard it turned off some the pro editors with the changes.

Adobe Premiere Pro is also a strong multimedia application mostly due to Adobe After Effects.

AVID Editing has come out back on top.
