Amazing instruction!

by Blaine Feyen
I purchased Izzy's course on Final Cut Pro several years go. I've come back to learn about FCP 10. Izzy is a GREAT teacher! Very thorough without being boring. He has a very thoughtful style and covers everything one needs to know to get the job done. Highly recommended!!

Simple & Easy

Easy to follow tutorial! Each clip is not too long so you can do just a few at a time if you prefer. Gives you all the basics you need to do basic video editing

First day with new software

by robin storey
I used to use Final Cut Pro a long time ago. I started using Premiere Pro and have been using that for the past seven or eight years. I don't really like the subscription basis Adobe adopted, it just doesn't suit me , so I thought I would try out Final Cut Pro X. I knew the software had been completely re-designed since I last used it and I also knew that Izzy was the guy to get me up to speed as I used his tutorials for the old version of Final Cut. Izzy's tutorials are so good that by the end of day one I was up and running and had made my first video on Final Cut X. I posted it to my FB account that evening. Thank you Izzy..
