FCP X Brings Significant Savings to ‘Whiskey Tango Foxtrot’ Production

Glenn Ficarra and John Requa’s upcoming comedy Whiskey Tango Foxtrot has 1200 visual effects shots. The directors chose to go with Apple Final Cut Pro X as their editing software, a decision they say particularly helped them while creating temp audio and VFX work during production.

“For me personally, as a director who edits, I like the all-in-one approach simply because I want to be able to drill down into the elements of anything,” Ficarra tells CreativeCOW.We had significant, significant savings because of the way we did all these things with Final Cut Pro X…Whatever saves you time in production is the real money savings, because nothing is more expensive than a day of shooting.”
