Final Cut Pro and “Three Dimensional Chess”

WASHINGTON, 14 August 2010 — Final Cut Pro Certified Instructor Kelly Donnellan (l) assists Gail Massari at the Backpack Journalism Workshop With Bill Gentile in Washington, DC. Behind them are Bob Shea (l) and Jeffy Mead, who drove to Washington from Rochester, NY, to attend the event. Gail Massari flew in from Raleigh, North Carolina.

On the third day of the four-day event, participants wrestle with the components of what I refer to as the three-dimensional chess of our craft. These three components are images that drive the model; natural sound on tape that is the heartbeat of the model; and narration that sets up, summarizes and connects the dots of the model.
