I floated this thought on the color forum, but this is probably a better venue. There are many of us who have been using FCP for quite a while and have learned enough to cover whatever job we have at hand.
What would be terrific would be some talented artists who could on an hourly basis, with some sort of minimum, walk us through a specific task in Color, Sound Tack, Motion, & DVD SP, and I suppose even FCP consulting would be a value.
I think these individuals could set their price, and do a lot of good for the entire production community plus be compensated well for their time.
I know I and my editors run into tasks all the time that require a great deal of time to work out on our own and would be more than willing to pay for consultation to achieve the task.
I have a feeling we’re not the only ones out there that feel this way.
