Join FCP Gurus Graeme Nattress Andrew Balis, KD Gulko and Ken Stone, as they will attempt to answer all of your questions and solve all of your problems concerning FCP.

Producing a movie doesn't have to be difficult! With Gorilla, all of your information can be stored in one place: Budgeting, scheduling, crew, cast, profit-sharing, editing notes, and even film festival submissions.
When it's time to create reports, Gorilla can generate over 70 industry-standard reports, from stripboards to breakdown sheets, budget top sheets to variances, your entire production can be run from one program. Ethan Markowitz will demo the latest version













8:10PM - 8:40PM - Start Editing Now - William Davis
Any editor will tell you: good editing takes practice.

William Davis himself will show off this one of a kind DVD.
