I needed a Final Cut Pro 7 class for work. There were a lot of FCPX classes in the area and a few 7 classes, but most would require travel and were very expensive. NWFF offered the a quick 2 day class for a reasonable price. They were easy to work with and there online directory was simple to use. I signed up and come to find out I was the only one in the class. They still held the class and from what I gathered, they did it because it was the right thing to do, it was not about the money. The class was great. They have a well equipped computer lab with good visual aids. My instructor was easy to work with. He was able to really explain the programs abilities without going way over my head. He was also able to show how really setting up the shot and getting plenty of footage would help me in the lab. NWFF is a great location and they do a great job supporting the local and emerging film industry. They offer a lot of classes for the professional to the weekend film warrior.

Simply amazing. From classes to eccentric and artsy films, you can get so much done here at the NWFF! I'm also amazed at how large the space is. Tucked away on 12th avenue you'd think it wasn't a large venue but it really is. Everyone I've encountered here as been really friendly and it's great to see so much passion for the arts. Man I love Seattle!
