Always open to the public. Lots of folks who attend dont use FCP so you are more than welcome. Just get a ticket before you arrive just in case we fill up.

That's very cool--Murch has been leading the way, with his famous book (In the Blink of an Eye), his pioneering ways (early Hollywood adopter of Avid, Final Cut Pro) and more. He's a teacher and a professional editor, so he's one of my biggest heroes.

I hope I can make this.
