In Jerry Hofmann's COWblog, he raises many great points about the art of editing and advancing the power of the story. Many COW members have already commented on Jerry's blog and it is getting high praise for its creative points and for the voice of experience that Jerry shares with our members.

Jerry teaches at the Colorado Film School at the University of Colorado, Denver, and he has been using nonlinear editing tools since buying his first Avid system -- the fourth one ever sold as a matter of fact -- and he has been a beta tester for Avid and many other systems over the years. He has edited many films, documentaries and TV programs during his career.

In his blog, Jerry reminds users of the issues they need to consider to advance the story and draw their audience into it.

Jerry can also answer just about any question related to FCP and is the author of the new Creative Cow Master Series title, Final Cut System Set-Up. The title is far from a beginner's guide and in it, he helps members learn the kind of experienced knowledge that will help you answer the questions that arise while using Final Cut.

There's a long list of reasons that we've avoided doing a Tradeshow Awards Issue... We have a unique perspective on awards, because we are not exactly magazine people, and at times it shows, but we hope it shows in some good things like new ways of fresh thinking, too.
