Training

More about the training I offer, in-person, online through video courses or screen sharing, and in written form. I’ve been an Apple Certified Trainer since 2007.

Trained hundreds of students since 1998 at university, college, high school and privately

I became TAFE qualified in 1998, and I've taught for QANTM CMC (now part of SAE), lectured and delivered tutorials and workshops at QUT, lectured at Design College Australia, and delivered training courses through smaller private training organisations and Training Brisbane, my own training business. Alongside the written and video training, in-person training is a big part of what I do.

As part of creating training courses, I've written original training manuals on Adobe Photoshop, Dreamweaver for Web Design, Flash and Director, as well as a rough guide to editing in FCP X.

Written over 170 articles for macProVideo.com

I've written enough articles for The Hub at macProVideo to fill a large book, including a six-part crash course in FCP X. Reviews, tutorials, tips, anything to do with creative gear. It's all completely free, and supports the paid video training courses also on offer.

Created more than 20 online video training courses for macProVideo.com/AskVideo.com

I've written, recorded, voiced and edited many courses, most over an hour in length, for macProVideo.com and AskVideo.com. Everything from Adobe to Apple, from beginner to advanced, and graphic design through video editing and animation. If you're not familiar with it, macProVideo.com is like "Lynda" but better; both streaming and downloading are available, and there are many apps available too.

Apple list just seven providers of online training on their FCP X Resources page and I'm happy to say that I'm now the active trainer behind macProVideo's new FCP X and Motion courses. (Most of the existing courses have been created by Michael Wohl, one of the original creators of FCP, but I'll be re-recording them as the apps are updated.)

Created many video tutorials and promotional videos for CoreMelt’s professional video effects tools

For CoreMelt, I've created many tutorial and promotional videos like this one, as well as helping during development and performing some logo and print design. I continue to work for CoreMelt today, and also write for the fcpxfree.com site, discussing free effects for Final Cut Pro X.
