CreativePact 2013 begins
Soon it will be September 1st. What does that mean? CreativePact will soon be underway of course. Akin to my very first CreativePact in 2010, this year I will be focussing on one piece of software: the much maligned Apple Final Cut Pro X.
Truth be told, I quite like the look of FCPX – it's actually Final Cut Pro 7 I find a pain to use (this is most likely because I'm not a digital film professional, and so do not know where FCPX is deficient from that perspective). I may provide a running critique of the software as I go.
So, my plan for the CreativePact is to approach FCPX from this non-professional stance as a material generation and processing tool. I have no grand delusions of creating a masterwork here: really, I want to see what is possible in the video domain, which will inform future creative directions.
Alongside posting to this very documentation site, I will post any videos I create to my Vimeo page. Bring it on!
