This will be an opportunity for folks to learn and practice advanced skills from the Casablanca Expert in the comfort and convenience of your own studio/office, with the cost savings of avoiding travel expenses!

 We'll join together using the latest in internet technology  (using the GoToWebinar services) and learn directly from Chet Davis.  It will be a _live_ class where you will be following along as I lead the class in the same exercise... the class will be divided up into four 3-hour segments, with time between each class session to practice what was learned and really move your Casablanca editing up the ladder of video enlightenment!
Participants will receive a printed work-book along with the class video projects (on disk transfer DVD).  So you'll follow along watching & using the same video scenes Chet has on his editing menu. And each session will be recorded so you will have the opportunity to review the lessons and maximize your learning!


"I am holding registration for each of these classes to only 12 learners per session -- I expect them to fill up fast" You can register today right on this page - click the ORDER NOW button above.

What will the workshop be like?  You will be seeing the Casablanca screen (monitor) of Chet Davis on your computer monitor while you hear Chet talking and teaching through each session... Chet will pause for questions at regular intervals.  If you have a question there is a place in the on-screen viewer for you to type in your question which Chet will see immediately and can address it.
Each participant will be working with the same video scenes and audio samples to it is really easy to follow along and learn.  Chet will guide you through some really useful exercises and provide tips along the way to make your video editing more creative and more efficient.
And - your registration in this workshop includes one-free hour of Casablanca Expert Private Tutor Time! This allows you to have a private online session with Chet Davis during or following the online workshop to review your specific question/s.

NOTE: This is an Advanced session is not for beginners or novice users, you should be very comfortable with the use of your Casablanca editor - a recommendation is that you use your Casablanca daily or regularly... that's the kind of fluency or comfort level we are striving for with this workshop.  This does not mean you cannot ask questions or even that you should not have questions... but rather we want to ensure the skills of the workshop participants is at a level that allows us all to reach new heights. 
If you believe your skills are more of Novice/Intermediate with your Casablanca, you may find this workshop more to your preference/ability: Virtual (Online) Novce/Intermediate Casablanca Workshop
Please see this page to review/confirm what you should already know about/be able to do with your Casablanca editor: Requirements for Participating in Online (Virtual) Casablanca Workshop. Due to the number of functions we'll be doing with new file import & export I recommend this workshop for colleagues using the newer Bogart OS editor (S4000/Pro, S2000 or S4100). However, if you believe you are an accomplished, advanced Casablanca user and wish to participate using your Smart Edit unit - please contact Chet Davis directly to ensure a good fit.

Here's what others had to say after participating in a Casablanca Expert Workshop:

"I learned a tremendous amount.There were so many features on the new Operating System that I couldn't figure out how to use them. So many short cuts you showed, that help me to improve and speed up the editing process. I learned a LOT more than I anticipated.  "


"What a great workshop!  I found myself paying close attention to every detail because everything you told us was of such value.

Even though I was familiar with several of the areas you covered, you were able to teach me more about it anyway - I learned several valuable tricks.  GREAT JOB!

I REALLY enjoyed your class. YOU make the class enjoyable and fun and you are so easy-going and an AMAZING teacher"
