DC Post House - trouble finding FCP X editor
on Jun 23, 2015 at 12:26:10 am

Got a call last week asking if I knew a skilled FCP X editor.....apparently a rare bird here in Washington DC. I called around and found pro AVID, FCP 7 and Premiere CC editors who all said "yeah I've played with it, but don't know enough to put myself out there for a job"

This was a big local post house that does hours of network and corporate TV....

so if you're in the DC area and are a FCP X whiz...this is an opportunity ..at least for this job and their client that insisted on editing with that program.....

otherwise, not many calls for that NLE here in DC

I head up editorial at Interface Media Group in DC and we're an FCPX house with 12 workstations connected to Xsan. We've done a ton of broadcast work in X the last few years.

Interface has had a lot of "firsts." We were one of the first Avid shops in the Mid Atlantic in 1990, one of the first to move to FCP in 2001 (version 2, oh yeah!), and we started migrating to X in 2012.

Cheers,
Bill

Thanks for the suggestions...and nice to know about Interface.....most freelancers I know haven't touched or gotten into FCP X - they are all FCP legacy editors - AVID or now Premiere...... Frankly I don't care how something gets edited if the person doing it is a skilled story teller. I switched from FCP 7 to Premiere because it was a painless transition - you can set it to work almost 99 percent the way 7 worked..without the endless rendering and transcoding.

My initial resistance to FCP x was audio - my radio background involved complex mixes ..easily accomplished in FCP 7....originally more difficult with X's put the audio anywhere the program feels won't collide with another track (solving a problem that virtually didn't exist for most editors) and still the added work of assigning roles etc and then sending to another program seems like extra work when you can visually see what your doing and what's nats narration music etc on a track based timeline. But more power to the folks who enjoy the new system.

Happy editing.
