“Off the Tracks is a must-see for any user of Final Cut Pro – past or present. It’s a wonderful case study of botched corporate rollouts; and a community working to save a technology from it’s own marketing department.”– James Swirsky, Director, Indie Game: The Movie
“If you like underdog stories Off the Tracks is for you. The story of the rise fall and rise again of the scrappiest NLE in the world. Masterfully directed by Brad Olsen.”– Alex Ferrari, Indie Film Hustle Podcast
“Final Cut Pro has always empowered filmmakers. The more I edit, the more I realize tools do matter because they help us tell better stories. Off The Tracks is a celebration of big ideas, radical change, and better tools so that artists can do more with less.”– Sven Pape, This Guy Edits
“While watching this film, all of my internal arguments against FCP X were not only stated, but were also then refuted. This notion that FCP X is just a glorified iMovie, or “iMovie Pro” deemed it an unprofessional tool, but clearly it can handle professional editing workflow and even make it easier.”– Lily Kleinman, Post Production Supervisor, Half Life
