Advanced Learning Opportunities

I love books. I own hundreds of them. I hope you keep this book next to your nonlinear editing or motion graphics system so that it can be truly useful. Books aren't people, however, and no matter how conversationally I try to write, this book will never replace the personal connection you may experience with a trainer, instructor, or professor.

You need to look for a personal training opportunity that matches your needs. I am not a fan of those big, rolling caravans that advertise three-day "master workshops" where you will sit in an auditorium and learn everything. Education needs to be a personal and balanced experience.

I tell folks to consider enrolling in a college class. This will most likely place you with 20 or so other people for a few months. Chances are the class will focus on print and Web and not video. There are exceptions, however, with several schools offering Digital Media Production or Broadcast Journalism programs. A college class has the benefit of homework and the subsequent feedback loop. I spent about a third of my professional life teaching college students the ins and outs of video and motion graphics. I am sure that these students frequently fail to realize just how new and exciting this field is.
