[FFmpeg-user] Can I Batch Encode with ffmpeg on Mac?

First off, I need to say that I'm very new to ffmpeg. I do not have
much experience with writing command lines or scripts so please excuse
me if I don't understand the terminology. I have figured out how to
encode uncompressed .mov files to cut off the first few seconds of the
video, and convert it to ProRes codec. Is there a way to automate the
process to batch encode several files at once? I'm using an iMac with
OS X El Capitan. Here is the command line that I use in terminal.

ffmpeg -ss 6 -i "title".mov -vcodec prores -acodec pcm_s24le "title_Prores".mov
