You are invited to our August 10th Los Angeles Post Production Group meeting at 7pm at the Stoner Recreation Center featuring a presentation by Digital Media & Technology Specialist Scott Carrey on:
BEST PRACTICES FOR MULTI-CHANNEL DISTRIBUTION:
BROADCAST, WEB, DEVICES AND EMERGING MEDIA CHANNELS
Building on Your Traditional Post Media Skills to Stay Employed in the Ever Emerging Digital and Social Media World.
We're looking forward to having Digital Media and Technology Specialist Scott Carrey back again, this time to explore the changing landscape of Content Creation, Distribution and Consumption and how we in Post Production can embrace this from a visual storytelling standpoint as well as a technological one. He will discuss using traditional tools like Avid/Sorenson Squeeze, FCP/Compressor, and Adobe Premiere/Encoder to output your content across the multiple formats that currently exist and those on the horizon. He will touch upon the many formats, codecs, and containers and how this makes for a fantastic opportunity to increase our value in the marketplace. This presentation will stress the underlying techniques to allow us to keep viable with the increasing technological changes.
