Cedric Robertson
Skills transfer is a critical and integral part of Cedric Robertson’s career, either as a mentor or being mentored. It started during his three year photographic apprenticeship back in 1975, where he gained invaluable knowledge from the industry experts and in that vain, he has continued to share and teach others, on-the-job, one-on-one or formally. In 1980 obtained his BET Certificate from SADF College of Educational Technology and in August 2013 qualified as an Apple Certified Trainer.

In the early days he edited on dinosaur systems like U-Matic, MII and Betacam SP and was quick on the uptake when NLE’s emerged using the then systems of the day, Avid and Media 100. Teaching is incomplete without knowledge and experience. He adds value to the FCPX course with over 20 years of experience running his successful production company. Work includes short films, music videos, corporate communications and doccies and his favourite genre – TV and Cinema commercials. As former Head of Operations at, South Africa, managed daily drama and news post production work stations and XSAN based HD documentary and natural history FCP edit suites.

Cedric is old school, based in Melbourne Australia, shoots RAW and loves FCPX!
