In April of 2005, I was presenting at NAB for Apple. It's interesting ... when you put an Apple shirt on, you instantly become the face of the company ... at one point I was talking to three producers from a TV station in Bristol, England.

"Apple needs better tech support for professionals in the UK," they told me, almost insinuating that I, in my black Apple shirt, should fix this - AND IMMEDIATELY! I told them to forget about Apple, and contact Jamie McCallister.

"Oh, we know Jamie," they smiled, "he's saved us on several occasions."

I know Jamie too, and it was at that moment I realized he is the best Apple video technician in the world, and I needed his expertise for our training programs.

Jamie brings over 20 years of experience as an AV technician to his tutorial programs. Beginning his career at the BBC as a Lighting Cameraman, in the late 80s and early 90s Jamie progressed to editing for Trillion/Limehouse. There he honed his editing-chops on shows including "The Word" and "Have I Got News For You".

Jamie next moved to setting up AV displays for large concert events, including the lighting, sound, and projection rigs for concerts by Queen and Pink Floyd. With knowledge in demand by everyone at the time, Apple found Jamie. For the next 10 years he worked at Apple UK's HQ close to Heathrow, which is where I first met him.

At Apple, Jamie provided technical expertise in the Audio Video arenas. Indeed, Jamie was one of the first people in the UK called upon to help develop Final Cut Pro and DVD Studio Pro.

Today, Jamie is one of the leading Apple Solutions experts in Europe providing Consultancy, Training, Technical and Creative support to the Film and TV industry including my friends from NAB, and the likes of the BBC, Granada, MPC, Sony Pictures, and Apple themselves. He has also written a number of technical articles and books for Apple.

On the fun side, Jamie used to race motorcycles semi-professionally and signed for Honda, becoming 600cc champion and also spannered at the the world famous Isle of Man races building race winning bikes and still enjoys riding bikes today.

And that's good, because all of this has made him one of the best trainers in the world for teaching Apple Pro applications. We are well-pleased to have him here, at macProVideo.com!
