When the WWE graphics department wanted to bulk up their Final Cut Pro, Motion and Shake skills, they called the professional trainers at the Manhattan Edit Workshop. Run by award-winning filmmaker and writer Josh Apter, the workshop squeezes weeks of training into four-day sessions. ”They came to us,” says Castellano. “We had four days of Shake and spent two weekends working with Final Cut and Motion. We learned some pretty advanced stuff.” The school also offers a six-week Final Cut Pro and AVID Xpress Pro combo course. Students learn editing techniques with both systems and study film history. Every graduate leaves with a professional sample reel and gets added to the Manhattan Edit Workshop "Editors Network" database.
