You will learn about Audio Network’s high-quality music library and how it enhances your production's value. Plus, they will be sharing a crash course on music rights for different formats and media.
Attendees will also hear from Audio Network’s Global Head of Music, getting a behind-the-scenes look at how they make and package their music.
FREELANCE, SOCIAL MEDIA, AND THE POWER OF COMMUNITY IN GETTING WORK
Looking for work is an ongoing challenge in the life of a post production freelancer. But luckily there are other avenues now to reach potential clients and employers: Social Media. Join us as Gordon Burkell, editor and founder of Art of the Guillotine, a site that shares and organizes information and news for post professionals, shares some of the ins and outs of how to make Social Media work for you.
Gordon currently teaches and hosts panels, events and lectures at Ryerson University. He is also the co-founder of #PostChat and runs Aotg.com, The Cutting Room Podcast and mobile apps to keep post professionals up to date on current post industry news.

ALEX BUONO'S VISUAL STORYTELLING 2 TOUR HEADS TO LA ON AUGUST 15th
Alex Buono’s Visual Storytelling 2 Tour will expand your filmmaking abilities by immersing you in an all-day learning experience about the principles of Visual Style and Subtext.
From his fast-turn around schedule as the DP of the SNL Film Unit to his role as the Co-Director/DP of the new IFC comedy series Documentary Now!, Alex is constantly challenged to recreate different looks.
In this workshop, Alex will share his approach to shooting distinct visual styles with hands-on demonstrations that utilize attendees as the crew. By understanding the visual patterns for different film genres and how to manifest each style through both lighting and camerawork, you will harness the power of visual cues for your own projects.
This tour will be hitting 32 cities from July 22nd to September 20th so visit http://vs2.mzed.com/ to find a city near you! The LA workshop will take place August 15th, 2015 at the LA Marriott Burbank Airport Hotel & Convention Center.
