davethompsonpic2.gifDave Thompson completed our 5 day Final Cut Studio Class in Orlando recently and works for the US Military.  Dave is from Houston, Texas, where he is currently employed as an Army Print and Broadcast Journalist at Ft Sam.  When asked, Dave had this to say about his training experience with GeniusDV.

"The class was exceptional!  The training curriculum was well conceived and executed and the equipment was state of the art.  This added to a very productive learning environment that I benefited tremendously from.  There was never a dull moment given the quality of projects and the fascination of seeing the editing process unfold.  I would highly recommend this training to anyone looking to learn or improve their editing skills.  Our primary instructor, Jeff, is a genius!  For me, it was completely awe-inspiring to see a master at his trade and Jeff is truly a wizard when it comes to editing using the Final Cut Pro system.  His vast knowledge and experience coupled with an easy-going approach and unparalleled teaching ability made it easy to grasp the instruction and navigate my way through the training.  Jeff made the training interactive and enjoyable and ensured everyone had a firm grasp on the processes before moving on.  He would bring other instructors in to add their perspective and expertise which enhanced the overall dynamics of the training.  The location was perfect and the facility was easy to get to and very conducive to learning.  Given the casual setting and small student numbers per class, I was made to feel right at home and given plenty of one-on-one assistance.  This created an atmosphere where classmates bonded quickly with each other as well as the instructors, and shared techniques and experiences."

"I learned how to organize the entire editing process in a way that is vastly more efficient and more dramatic to the final product.  I learned the effective use of the numerous short cut keys and tools that resulted in the production of creative and high quality video that make my target audience want to watch.  As well, I learned how to configure my Mac systems and camera settings in such a way that make video editing more enjoyable, efficient and more dynamic.  The use of my learned skills, particularly with Motion, Photoshop, LiveType and audio tuning, have made my video production pieces seemingly come to life!  Due to the Genius training, I find that I have stepped up to a whole new level and am now creating effects, edits and sounds I never knew I was capable of .  I cannot say enough about how thrilled I am that I experienced this training and my superiors hve appreciated and applauded my new skill sets.  It was well worth the cost and I would highly recommend GeniusDV to anyone seeking to learn or improve their proficiency with video editing.  My experience was phenomenal and I am a far better video editor because of it.  Many thanks to Jeff and all the GeniusDV staff who collaborated to make the training experience a joyful, productive and memorable one."
