Rory Cantwell's Software Skills
Rory has been using Resolve as his main grading software for years and he's a busy colourist, so he knows DaVinci Resolve in all its facets, grading and editing.
Final Cut Pro 7 is like going home for Rory, he has been using and training Final Cut pro since 2001, becoming a Final Cut Studio Master. Rory still uses Final Cut Pro 7 for clients, but now he prefers Final Cut Pro X.
Since Final Cut Pro X was released Rory has been one of those who was open minded about the changes and now he wouldn't use anything else to edit with. He is an Apple Certifed Training and a partner in Soho Editors.
We represent some of the best professional freelance Apple Motion 5 Graphics talent in the UK from all areas of media including Commercials, Broadcast TV, Web, Viral, Corporate, Music, Computer Games and Feature Films.
