Sony Creative Software today announced that award-winning guitarist Dweezil Zappa – son of the legendary Frank Zappa – will share how he uses Sony Creative Software products at the company’s 10th annual NAB User Group event. Hosted in partnership with VASST, and sponsored by AMD, the event will be held Monday, April 12 at 6:30 pm in the Las Vegas Convention Center North Hall, rooms N249-251.
After a self-imposed seven-year meditation on music, Dweezil Zappa emerged as an exceptionally talented guitarist, earning a Grammy in 2009 for his LP “Zappa Plays Zappa.” After years of “over the shoulder” participation in creating his own video and DVD projects, Zappa turned to Sony Vegas Pro to help introduce his father’s celebrated works to an entirely new generation of music fans.
“Sony Vegas Pro and my AMD-powered workstation have helped me to maintain strict attention to detail and achieve continuity and creativity throughout my entire video project,” said Zappa. “All of the effort I’ve put into learning the music and rehearsing with the band has uniquely qualified me as a video editor for my music. I know the entrances of every instrument, where it breathes and how it’s phrased, and now I have all the right tools and the skills to transform that intimate knowledge of my music into video that makes the songs come alive in a whole new medium.”
In addition to sharing product developments at the User Group event, Sony Creative Software will also be giving away an ATI FirePro™ V5700 Professional Graphics Card. Additional confirmed speakers include filmmaker Justin Fornal – aka. Baron Ambrosia – host of the wildly popular TV show “Bronx Flavor,” VASST Managing Producer and Vegas Pro expert Douglas Spotted Eagle, AMD director of digital media and entertainment Charlie Boswell, Sony Creative Software vice president of global marketing Dave Chaimson and other Sony executives.
Pre-registration is required to attend the Sony Creative Software NAB 2010 User Group event.
