Hello all!  If you have a camera, and have always wished you knew how to edit those old home videos, now is you chance! Starting next week from 5:30pm to 7:30pm on Oct. 4th, and continuing on the 5th, and 12th, CCTV will be hosting an Intro to Final Cut Pro class. 

What is Final Cut Pro? Final Cut Pro is currently one of the leading video editing programs out on the market, for both consumers and video professionals. While not all video editing software is the same, they share similar concepts. As such, you will leave this course with an understanding of video editing that will be applicable to any video editing software you might use in the future.


The class costs $40.00 and you will need to attend all three classes. Our very skilled and charming Ben Phillippo will teach this class. He holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Film from Emerson College, and spent some time working out in LA.
