Happy New Year! (and an update)

First of all, Happy New Year to you! I hope it’s an amazing year for your video journey (and your other endeavors)!

I’m wrapping up preparations on my new Final Cut Pro training, so now I’m entering the recording stage. The problem is that my voice isn’t up to the task yet because I’m still recovering from being sick.

As soon as my voice is back to normal (any day now!), I’ll begin recording. Recording can be pretty time-consuming, so I’m thinking it should be done in a couple weeks.

In the meantime, I also decided to run another session of my “Intro to Motion” course. This is one of my favorite topics to cover because Motion can be so much fun (and super-useful).

And I’m planning to do something different this time. Along with the recorded videos and the online virtual workshops, I’m also adding a Slack channel. If you’re not familiar with Slack, it’s a platform that is kind of like a cross between a chat room and a forum. It’s a excellent way for a group to communicate.

When I add the Slack workspace, it will provide lots of additional opportunities for you to ask questions and get clarification.

So the revised “Intro to Motion” training will have three main elements:

  1. Training videos (like usual) which include downloadable practice media
  2. Online, virtual workshops where we’ll work through projects step-by-step
  3. Access to the Slack channel for communication with each other and me.

I’m planning to start the new session on January 16th.

Registration for the course will open on January 9th. Keep an eye on your email for more details about this.

I love training on Motion, so I’m excited to get back to it!

If you’ve already taken the “Intro to Motion” training before, you’ll have the opportunity to register for the new session at a super-deep discount. All the content and material will be the same as before, so the reasons to register again would be: 1) To get access to the Slack group, and 2) To work through the live workshops with me again.

If this will be your first time taking the “Intro to Motion” session with me, I hope it’s useful to you. The feedback I’ve received has been very positive. People tell me it’s a great way to get up and running with Motion. And of course, that’s my goal with this. :)

If you have questions or comments, please feel free to post them here. I’ll be monitoring the comments for the next couple days and answering as many questions as I can.
