Couldn't make it to Los Angeles for the recent Light Iron event where the the directors and editor of Focus talked about how they made the film on Final Cut Pro X? The recordings from the sessions are now online.

The biggest FCPX news of 2015 has undoubtedly been the production of the Hollywood feature Focus. We have the most in-depth articles on how FCPX was used to edit Focus right here on FCP.co.

How the Hollywood feature film Focus was edited on Final Cut Pro X Part Two

 

A week after the film's release, Light Iron invited guests to a special event where those involved with the film talked about the workflow and their experiences of using FCPX on Focus. The sessions were recorded and the embedding restrictions have just been lifted, so here are the four videos from that presentation.

For editors like ourselves, video two looks the most interesting where the film's Associate Producer Jeffrey Harlacker, Director Glenn Ficarra, and Editor Jan Kovac are on the panel. Mike Matzdorff appears after the break too.

 A big thank you to everybody involved, especially Michael Cioni from Light Iron.
