Agenda (UPDATED Descriptions Forthcoming and not in order)

"It’s hard to be mad in fuzzy slippers." - Bruce the Yak

- "What You Need to Know About Final Cut Pro X" Michael Wohl
Says Michael: "There's a lot of myths circulating in the industry as to what Final Cut Pro X can and cannot do," states Wohl. "That's my focus at the SuperMeet, to clear up the confusion about what Final Cut Pro X editors can do now."

About Michael Wohl
Michael Wohl
is a pioneer of desktop video, and a man of true vision. Indeed, if you want to know the true history of Final Cut Pro, ask Michael Wohl. Michael was one of the original designers of Final Cut Pro, when Macromedia started developing the application in 1995 (long before Apple purchased the program). Instrumental to the development and design of this awesome video editing application, Michael was involved in all aspects of its design until several years after Apple acquired the software, at which point he left to pursue his other passion as a film director. Michael knows Final Cut Pro like few others! MORE

After 15 years in the industry Eddie has cut over 20 feature films (both indies and studio movies) in a wide variety of genres as well as TV dramas, documentaries andaward-winning shorts.
