Have some time on your hands? Filmmaker U is an online education series that brings the best craftspeople in the film business from behind the camera together to teach the next generation of filmmakers. Unlike many courses that focus on how to use and operate an editing application, Filmmaker U takes students inside the studio and into the mind of each instructor.

The “Master Film Editing with Brian Kates, ACE” workshop spans approximately 10 chapters and looks at working with footage, music, VFX and changes. Kates has worked on The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Shortbus, and Lee Daniels’ The Butler, and has won two Emmys. Other courses examine sound design, mastering and color grading.

The courses are priced at just $99, affordable to both students and working individuals and LAPPG members will receive 20% off with code LAPPG.

Post|Production World returns to NAB Show Las Vegas on April 18-22, 2020 with cutting-edge training sessions and field workshops taking place at the convention center and at real-life studios for a fully immersive learning experience. The multi-day event is geared towards media professionals who are seeking to learn new skills, improve their workflows, and become more knowledgeable on the latest software and content creation trends.

Sessions will include production techniques, motion graphics training, a podcast bootcamp, and hands-on training on After Effects, Final Cut Pro X and DaVinci Resolve. In addition, to the extensive training program held in the breakout sessions at the Las Vegas Convention Center, several field workshops will take place in a real-world setting. Workshops include a 2-day, 360/VR Production Field workshop taught by Nick Harauz, who will educate attendees on 360 video production for immersive content creation. Jem Schofield will host his usually sold-out small-to-no-crew corporate and in-house production workshop. Douglas Spotted Eagle will also teach beginner and advanced sessions on UAV production for those interested in using Small Unmanned Aerial Systems (sUAS or Drones) during their video shoots.

A new pass option called the Hands-On Studio Experience features interactive training. This is your chance to go into the field with leading experts and see real-world workflows and gear in action, at The Space, an offsite studio venue. You can choose to attend one, two, or all three days. Each day offers 4 rooms with mini workshops taking place in each room, allowing attendees to rotate between training sessions of their interest.

The training sessions and registration packages are available on the NAB Show Las Vegas website.
