Editor creatively bashes FCPX
After Conan, Jeffery Harrell found a creative way to express his dissatisfaction to Apple. Posted five hours ago and edited as a mock-up of the Social Network Trailer, Harrell’s video soberly named ‘I have no title for this‘ has already reached more than 3,000 hits after 5 hours on the Net. The statement is straight forward and the conclusion bold.
Harrell’s said in the video description:
‘I spent a few days using Final Cut Pro X. And I formed some opinions about it.

Oh. And I cut this with Adobe Premiere CS5.5. Have to learn somehow.’
Let’s see how many more people it will reach and if it will stay up for long.
UPDATE 6/27/2011 2h18PM (Pacific Time): the video is down. It stayed online less than 24h. Last time I checked (two hours ag0) it had more than 25 000 views and 200 comments.
Jeffery Harrell sent a twitt 25 minutes ago saying he won’t upload the video again. Too bad but understandable.
UPDATE 06/27/2011 9h30 PM (Pacific Time): and it’s back! Via Youtube this time. 306 views so far.
UPDATE 06/28/2011 1PM (Pacific Time): 13,715 views. [sorry, my geeky spirit cannot help but keeping track.]
UPDATE 06/29/2011 2h30PM (Pacific Time): 36,278 views. It seems that they (whoever they are) renounced to shut it down.
