Teaching Creativity Using Apple Final Cut Pro X

Published on

This is the presentation I gave at the Apple ProTools event in Natick, MA in June 2014. I talk about the power of stories, tell a few of my own, and share the process I use to teach students the workflow of having an idea, making it funny, and bringing that idea to the screen.
