This is a real-time edit training lesson in Final Cut Pro X. The method that I use is what I call Edit Sprint. I use a countdown timer of 15 minutes and make sure to never stop working. The most important thing in this lesson is to never review material, or go back in the timeline when you’re editing.
I use material I filmed on my iPhone when taking a walk with my friend here in Iceland. I asked him to stroll around and look normal (a challenge by itself when working with a friend). The result from this 15-minute real-time edit session was 00:49 seconds of narrative structure.
This is an extensive video lesson (16:30) so at the moment this is only for paying members. See video below -> [Video only playable for paying members on the website]
