This will be an opportunity for folks to learn from the Casablanca Expert but in the convenience of your own studio/home/office. 

 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 competency scale!
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.
