FINAL CUT PRO TRAINING - AVID TRAINING - PREMIERE TRAINING  "the greatest threat is not knowing what you don't know"




Our training is in line with internationally recognized guidelines and recommendations. Courses are focused and specific to daily edit suite operations. Our students are productive in any post production environment right away.

We are situated in Fourways, Johannesburg. Training can be arranged at your premises for convenience on request.

With the exception of discounted group training assignments we prefer to limit the size of our courses to ensure maximum personal attention. We are able to modify courses to meet with specific client requirements.

International assignments have been undertaken in Mombasa, Jeddah, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Okavango and Namibia.

We are regularly entrusted with skills development by broadcasters ETV, SABC, Supersport and Multichoice.  Our alumni have edited on popular series like SA Idols, Isidingo, Egoli, Masterchef-SA, Carte Blanche amongst others.

Michael has previously lectured at AFDA Film School, Vegaschool, Durban University of Technology, Rhodes School of Journalism, University of Johannesburg, Pretoria University and Monash University.

Recently assisted the United Nations International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda with media workflow design and editing skills training.

  I want to extend once again my most sincerest of appreciation for the knowledge and training you offered on the fcp 101 course. I can't tell people enough of the value of your courses. Thank you once again for the great career advice and guidance you gave.

Thanks for reminding me that editing is fun. I learned much more than I expected and I feel confident to take on more demanding assignments.
Carina van Wyk – Freelance editor
Mike is an approachable and easy going teacher who knows his systems inside and out.
He is in touch with his students requirements and I would not consider going anywhere else for tutelage.
Kat Kovacs - Freelance editor

The FCP X course was extremely informative and fun. Thank you Michael - your teaching methods were great and I felt comfortable and eager to learn.
Adeela Haffajee - Luciferin Films

I learned more than I did at University about editing work flows as well as the actual Final Cut Pro program, and feel that I know more after a week of training with Mike than I learned in 2 years of editing every day on the job. It sounds impossible but really, 5 full days of training and I tripled my salary for following six months by being the sole freelance producing and editing a project.
All round, what a great experience and money well spent!!! Can't wait to do the next Purple Mouse course!
Tamarin Gerriety - Freelance producer


Thanks so much for the time and experience you shared with me.  I am amazed at how much I learned in such a short space of time, truly in thanks to your generosity of passing on knowledge.                                              Janine Montogomery - Producer Rainbow Productions
