"Karen had tons of experience. The class was a focused group wanting to further their understanding of Final Cut and how it could help their careers. Thanks, Karen!"
"Karen is a hands-on, caring, knowledgeable instructor. She's always ready with advice -- from equipment to buy to edits to make. By the end of the class I felt much more confident using this complicated program than I would ever have thought walking in."
