Apter and Feldman’s commentary and chemistry made the time fly – kudos for producing something so different," says Final Cut Pro Master and Technology Visionary, Evan Schechtman.

Apter and Feldman take viewers on an informative journey, re-editing a DSLR short film originally cut in Final Cut Pro 7. Not your grandma’s average training video, the dynamic pair teaches students how to clear the FCP X hurdles and learn to love its innovative new features. “The new ‘Classroom in a Cup’ series from Mewshop is definitely a different way to learn. You will laugh, shake your a head a few times – and along the way – pick up killer editing tips and techniques for any FCP X project. It’s a new and unique approach to training that hasn’t been done before… and these guys knock it out of the park,” comments Jem Schofield, Producer/Educator,
