With over 25 years of experience in the video industry, legendary software instructor Larry Jordan brings wisdom and experience to your education.
By Martin Sitter
There's very few people in the software training industry that don't know Larry Jordan, myself included. I met Mr. Jordan a long long time ago in a tradeshow far, far away â€¦ we've traveled the circuit together for years!
Mr. Jordan has continuously amazed me with his dedication to helping people learn software. As an Apple-Certified Trainer in Digital Media, specializing in Final Cut Studio, Mr. Jordan combines his extensive production experience with his teaching skills to bring a wide-ranging, real-world perspective to his classes. He was one of the first four Apple-Certified trainers in the U.S. to receive credentials as an â€œAdvanced level" Final Cut Pro instructor, and these skills are immediately present in his calm delivery of complex video editing topics.
As a veteran technical author, Mr. Jordan is the Founder and Editor-in-Chief of "Edit Well," the rich-media newsletter for Final Cut Studio, published by Peachpit Press. He has also created and narrated hundreds of hours of online training for Lynda.com and is the author of five books on Final Cut Pro, published by Peachpit Press and Focal Press.
When he's not helping people learn software, Mr. Jordan is a producer, director, editor, consultant and trainer with over 25 years of video production and post-production experience. A member of both the Directors Guild of America and the Producers Guild of America, he is a post-production consultant to Los Angeles broadcast and production studios. In addition to his broadcast credits, Mr. Jordan is recognized as one of the Top 100 Corporate Producers in America and is frequently featured as a speaker at seminars and user groups around the U.S.
And most important of all, Mr. Jordan is a macProVideo.com presenter. We hope you enjoy his shows ...

Course was laid out well, short lessons made it easy to get through as I had to stop several times but picked up right where I left off. Loved all the information this course provided. I learned a lot.

An excellent course covering a range of foundational AV topics in detail - especially good if you're a starting out or looking to fill in your knowledge gaps in a self contained video course.

Larry is very entertaining and knowledgeable. The course is a few years old now in an area with a lot of progress. So some of its a bit dated, yet still some good info to be had.

Useful and simple information about video and a bit of sound. General concepts, but used properly, will make your videos look, and sound better.

outdated video! looks like a recording from 10 years ago, tape recorders and CR tv screens. This is a bad stuff really.

Some good advice for beginners but the magazine format made watching several tutorials in one sitting rather a repetitive experience.

Very informative but looking for something even more fundamental! Understanding the vocabulary is have the battle. Listened to many segments several times over to grasp concept and spent time doing additional research. I'll revisit the course.

This is a great explanation of some of the confusing terms and ideas that entry-level (and some other) HD video users struggle with. Bit depth, color space, hard drive specs, etc.

Before buying a camera, watch these. Unfortunately; most people buy cameras without researching.
