6:45- 7:15PM - Stump the Gurus
Join FCP Gurus Andrew Balis, Shane Ross and Philip Hodgetts as they will attempt to answer all of your questions and solve all of your problems concerning FCS. If they can't solve your problem or answer your How 2, then you go home with a problem but you still got out of the house, so that's not a bad thing.
7:20PM - 7:35PM - Sync-N-Link for FCP - Philip Hodgetts
Intelligent Assistance set out to attempt to replicate the functionality of Avid's Auto-sync for Final Cut Pro users, and went one better. Sync-N-Link can be used to synchronize timecode- synchronized dual system audio and video automatically before editorial (like you've been able to do with Avid for years). However Sync-N-Link goes one better: proceed through editorial with camera audio and when close to picture lock send the sequence (via XML) to Sync-N-Link and in return get the Sequence back with the camera audio replaced by the multi-track audio. We leave all your temp effects and music in place on lower tracks, while giving you all the BWF or multi- track audio in place of the camera temp.

9:00PM - 9:25PM - Final Cut Studio and "Smashing Pumpkins: If All Goes Wrong" - James Salkind & Jack Gulick
Producer/director Jack Gulick and post supervisor/editor James Salkind will discuss the post production and media management workflow that they used on the recently released DVD, "Smashing Pumpkins: If All Goes Wrong" After a 60-day documentary shoot, and five nights of multi-camera shoots at the Fillmore Auditorium, they faced the task of wrangling 600 hours of footage into a feature-length documentary and a long-form concert video (and DVD bonus features). They will highlight how the media was organized for editing, using the Open Format Timeline, multiclip editing, and preparing for color correction in Color. Plus a handy tip for converting 24p HDV footage shot with the Sony V1U.
9:30PM - 9:50PM - "Love Conquers Al - Kamili Minter and Kenn Michael
Love Conquers Al is a quirky romantic comedy about Al, an awkward employee who desperately wants to ask out the cute and klutzy office vixen, Bridgette. But first he has two get all the personalities in his head to agree. Written, directed, and edited by Kamali Minter, who used FCP Studio to cut, composite, and color, the effect heavy short. It's a co-production with her partner Kenn Michael, an accomplished musician and filmmaker in his own right, who DP'd, scored, and did all of the sound design and audio post. Kamali works a lot as an editor on FCP cutting reality shows for Bravo, Food Network, TLC, and more. And Kenn has recently added being a RED consultant to his long list of credits. We believe that creative, quality, production doesn't have to cost a fortune and we love to share our workflow, and methods.
