Three bits of news from Sam Mestman over at FCPWORKS. We have a podcast with a rather familiar guest, a video tutorial on getting daily rushes out of FCPX and details about NAB 2015.

Let us start off with Sam's podcast. Over on his We Make Movies website, he talks to Peter Wiggins, the person behind this website, FCP.co. Although they touch on FCPX, the topic is the future of broadcasting.
