Casablanca Hands-on Workshop - Philly, PA 2010

You can join Casablanca expert Chet Davis in the mid-Atlantic U.S.  Chet will provide you with an opportunity to be coached in intermediate/advanced Casablanca skills and techniques!  Our workshop will be just outside Philadelphia (on the NJ Turnpike, Exit 5) - which I belive is relatively convenient for folks throughout the middle Atlantic states. 

You bring your Casablanca unit and a monitor.  Chet will supply the class footage as AVI files on DVD for use with Disk Transfer.  You load the footage onto your Casablanca editor and follow along with Chet as he leads you through two days worth of exercises to help raise you on the ladder of video enlightenment.

Registration for this two-day hands-on training is just $199.00 per person. The registration fee includes workshop footage on DVD, expert instruction & hands-on training, lunch both days... and you'll receive a DVD set of the entire workshop for you to review back in your edit studio! This year I will provide your set of workshop DVDs right at the end of our workshop! (pre-produced for expedient delivery)

* Your Casablanca unit must have Smart Edit 8 (SE9), or Bogart SE OS 2 (Bogart 3) active as well as the following 3 add-on software products installed and activated (not in Demo Mode) Disk Transfer, Photo Studio 2, PowerKey and DVD Arabesk 4

New Option: If the absence of  Disk Transfer (or the expense of purchasing it)  is the obstacle keeping you from registering for this work -  I have a remedy. I am happy to offer to send you a miniDV tape of the workshop footage that would need to be loaded in & split prior to the workshop. This makes sense if Disk Transfer is not something you see a big need for apart from this workshop. Contact me directly via email ( once you have registered to take advantage of this option.

Other software that must be active or installed and in the 'demo' mode includes: Magic Lights (or Magic Lights 2), Video Spice Rack or Ultimate Spice Box, Audio Effects Pack.  You will be provided with the Disk Transfer DVD upon set-up on Tuesday morning. We will load the workshop footage as part of our first day activities
