I am in Boston, teaching an Intermediate / Advanced After Effects class.  We had our Open House yesterday evening, and what a success it was.  I had a great time going over Photoshop, After Effects, PPro, Encore and SoundBooth with the people that came to see the new FMC Boston Office.  I also had the chance to meet lots and lots of new people last night, what a treat!If you get a chance, the office is in Cambridge, and it is really beautiful – Everything is brand new here!

Will be updating my podcasts very soon.  If you have a specific request, let me know!

Later,

What a great last 2 weeks I have had!  I went to Florida where I taught After Effects for a whole week – I met a very bright and talented lady, that I am sure will go very far in her After Effects journey!

I also presented for the InDesign users group – this was really good, even though I was late (got lost in Orlando’s I4 exits!).  Great group of people that I have had the pleasure of visiting twice.

Then I had the open house at Future Media Concepts – I presented my “Flash Website in 30 Minutes” program to another group of great people.

After a half a day home, I went to Philadelphia to teach Captivate.  Future Media Concepts’ office in Philadelphia is really nice – so I had a blast!  Visited with friends, had great students, ate great food – what else can I ask for?

Today is July 3rd, and in celebration of our Country’s Independence,  I will stop blogging, stop working and celebrate!

Happy 4th of July everyone!!

It took 8 days of classes, over a year of preparing (reading, studying, practicing), 2 tough exams, and lots  of work – but I am now a Certified Final Cut Pro Instructor.

All last week I have been taking Train The Trainer classes at Future Media Concepts in Washington DC.  My instructor, Abba Shapiro, was WONDERFUL.  I cannot say enough good things about him.  If you get a chance to go to one of his classes or lectures, you owe it yourself to go!  Abba is a real pro and I learned tons with him!!

I will continue my own personal development, as well as continue teaching all of the applications that I am certified to teach.

Have a great (wet!) weekend!!!

🙂
