Event Details

Casablanca Expert Virtual Workshop

Held Four (4) Consecutive Saturdays - March 9, 16, 23, 30

8:00AM-11:00AM Pacific / 10:00AM-1:00PM Central / 11:00AM-2:00PM Eastern

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. Chet and his Casablanca screen will appear on your computer monitor (or you iPad) and Chet's teaching/voice will come through your comptuer speaker/s.

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 DVD with the footage for the class video projects that you will import into your Casablanca editor using the add-on Disk Transfer software.  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 each of these classes to only 10 learners per session -- 
they are expected to fill up"

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.
NOTE: This session is not for brand new beginner users, you should be comfortable with the use of your Casablanca editor - a recommendation is that you use your Casablanca regularly.  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.

This particular session is for those working on the Smart Edit OS Casablanca only (see this page for Bogart OS workshop)

Your Casablanca unit must have Smart Edit 8 or Smart Edit 9 Operating System active as well as the following five add-on software products installed and activated (not in Demo Mode) Disk Transfer, PowerKey, Effects Pack 8, and DVD Arabesk 4.

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"
