You are invited join us for the Los Angeles Post Production Group meeting on November 9th, 2011 at 7pm.
An Evening of Media Management and File Based Workflows
Will Pisnieski of Authentic Entertainment
Will Pisnieski, VP of Post Production at Authentic Entertainment will discuss Authentic's plan to transition away from traditional DVCPro tape to a completely file based workflow. He'll also explore why Authentic is considering abandoning their Final Cut Pro workflow that they've spent the past 10 years developing.
Authentic Entertainment has 45 Final Cut Pro edit bays and can have 35 editors and 10 online editors each accessing hundreds of hours of reality footage from a 175TB San Server.
Authentic creates reality and documentary programming for networks such as Discovery Channel, Bravo and Sundance Channel. Programs that Will oversees include Discovery's "Auction Kings," Bravo's "Flipping Out," and Sundance Channel's "Ludo Bites America."
Rorke Data's Strawberry Demo
Hot off the heels of winning a Pick Hit Award at IBC, Daryl Heinis and Teresa McPhearson from Rorke Data will present their award winning integrated file based workflow solution called Strawberry. We'll find out what the industry is buzzing about when we have the opportunity to see all the facets of this powerful software including project management, project sharing, asset database and searching, team management and a morphing file system. Strawberry enables the same type of bin locking and media sharing as Unity, but brings this to Adobe and FCP as well as Avid. You won't want to miss this!
$5.00 is requested at the door. We will have our amazing raffle as always!
Plus, if you're looking for a new editing sytem we'll be giving away an Adobe Premiere Pro!! Must be present to win!
