Chris Roberts: Video Editor and Trainer

Chris Roberts is a freelance video producer, video editor, Apple Certified Trainer, Apple Mentor Trainer and Adobe Certified Instructor based in Birmingham, UK.

 

After graduating with a First Class degree in Drama from Bristol University and a Masters degree in TV Production from the University of Manchester, I began my career editing  feature packages on local radio before moving into corporate video production.

 

Over the years I have edited a huge variety of projects from corporate training DVDs and online promotional videos, to short dramas and broadcast documentaries, and have expanded my skills to include motion graphics design, colour correction and grading. This experience is useful when delivering training courses as I am able to bring real-world experience and practical examples to my training. Similarly, an in-depth knowledge of software and workflows benefits my production work.

 

 

I began delivering training in 2003 before becoming an Apple Certified Trainer in 2005. In 2008 I became one of the first Apple Certified Master Trainers in Europe. Soon after I was invited to become a Mentor Trainer for Apple, delivering Final Cut Pro Train-the-Trainer classes in Europe.   Today, I am currently one of only two Mentor Trainers for Final Cut Pro X in the UK.

 

I  diversified my training in 2011 when I became an Adobe Certified Instructor for Premiere Pro and was also among the first in the world to recertify as an Apple Certified Trainer for both Final Cut Pro X and Motion 5.

 

I have delivered training in video editing to university students and staff, broadcast journalists, sports, factual and drama editors. I have also run bespoke training in both Final Cut Pro and Premiere Pro for a variety of private and public sector organisations and charities throughout the UK and across Europe.

 

I live on the outskirts of Birmingham with my partner Samantha and her two children. When not working I enjoy long walks, reading post-apocalyptic fiction, listening to hard rock and blues, and binge-watching the TV I invariably miss. I'd like to add DIY to this list, but admitted a long time ago that I'm just not very good at it.
