Here at Mahalo, we’re incredibly lucky to have an in-house team of software and technology specialists. These guys could tell you about any program from Safari to Photoshop to Pro Tools, and if they are unfamiliar with a particular software program, they’ll find a way to quickly become an expert. Our goal with these courses is not just to walk you through the program but to leave you confident enough to list it as a skill on your resume.
For our most recent software project, one of my writers joined up with Justin Zagri to develop a Final Cut Pro X course. Final Cut Pro is a non-linear video editing program that supports several video tracks composited simultaneously. Mahalo’s course takes you step by step through the process of starting a new project; adding titles, effects, sounds and exporting to email, Facebook or YouTube.
And Justin is the perfect host to guide you through this program. He earned his bachelor’s degree in cinema and television and has over a decade of experience editing short films, demo reels and feature films. Initially self-taught, Justin learned the multiple facets of Final Cut, AVID and Adobe After Effects to create design work for himself and clients. He takes pride in passing on what he knows about Final Cut and other video editing software, as he knows first-hand the value of having those skills of your resume.
So take a look over this course and give us your feedback. Stuck on a particular task? Did we skip a feature you're dying to learn about?
