How the Hollywood film Whiskey Tango Foxtrot was edited on Final Cut Pro X

“Whiskey Tango Foxtrot is the new comedy war film from Paramount Studios starring Tina Fey. We asked director Glenn Ficarra, Editor Jan Kovac, Assistant Editor Kevin Bailey and Apprentice Editor Esther Sokolow how the film was made, what was different from Focus and of course how well Final Cut Pro X performed?

We think you know the answer already, but again their detailed workflow is well worth a read. Especially if you are going to cut your next Hollywood feature film on Final Cut Pro X!

Last year’s’s two articles on Focus, the first major Hollywood studio film to be cut on FCPX, proved to be highly popular. So when we were asked if we would like to find out more about Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, the latest Tina Fey film from directors Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, we jumped at the chance. ” –

Libraries, fixing time lapses with optical flow and audio repair


“Is it our misguided impression, or are there more cracking tutorials out there for Final Cut Pro X than any other NLE? True or not, we thought we would list some good ones from the last few days.

On another note as well, we have seen a huge surge in videos uploaded to sharing sites with the FCPX tag attached. Not an accurate dipstick of NLE usage, but it is interesting to see how far ranging across topics FCPX has become.

Back to the tutorials and let’s start off with this seven minute look at consolidation within FCPX 10.1.2. Dustin Hoye made this short tutorial to help his staff when sharing projects but published the video to help others. If his name rings a bell, Dustin wrote one of the first articles about using FCPX in a broadcast environment, which is still a great read!” –
