“From analog Texas to digital Hollywood ... The Crazy Odyssey of a Sculptor transformed into a TV and Film Production Veteran”

Don’t read the books.  Don’t pay for the courses.  Just sit down and listen to the honest, unfiltered musings of an industry veteran and technical genius who has worked with some of the industry’s most talented directors, producers and craftspeople.  Learn how to apply his practical advice to survive and succeed in the highly competitive and ever-evolving world of production amid a blooming digital democracy.  Why do certain cameras and post workflows affect storytelling?  See how technical and nerdy knowledge can be masterfully woven to tell and sell stories and messages.  Learn how to avoid being taken advantage of.  

Additional areas of focus include:

•  The Magic of Post Production

•  Software is a savior, but photography is still king

•  Why the workflow matters

•  Leveraging the technology of 4 screens

•  Beyond the industry screen, bringing something more to the process

•  Budget vs Creative ... How to Make Chicken Salad out of Chicken Shit

•  The Director... First-timers vs Veterans: Pros + Cons

•  Friendship in the industry... How it really works

•  How to join a union, and why

•  The Unpublished, Unknown Secret Survival Tips

Dan Wilken is a production veteran of film and television, an industry jack-of-all-trades nicknamed “Digital Dan”. An editor, colorist, online editor, visual effects producer, after effects artist, cinematographer, digital image technician, Avid and Final Cut consultant, re-recoding mixer, and ultimate digital troubleshooter, he not only spans specialties but brings incisive insight to each subfield of the moving pictures.   


Some of Dan's recent notable credits include LEVERAGE, FOOD INC, an Oscar-nominated feature documentary, and the green documentary WHO KILLED THE ELECTRIC CAR?


Pizza & Post is a great opportunity to gain new insights, ask a few questions, network with your post production peers, and eat a lot of pizza! There's free parking in the adjacent parking garage (entrance at 231 E. Palm St., one block east of Magnolia).
