Northern California/Bay Area Hands-on Workshop

Tuesday-Wednesday June 4-5, 2013

NOTE: This will be a Bogart only workshop - there are too many variations between Smart Edit & Bogart now and it would be too much division to teach both platforms together. If you need Smart Edit lessons - Chet will be offering Smart Edit only classes later and on DVD)
