If I may take a moment to engage in a bit of shameless self-promotion please indulge me! Once again I’m honored to be teaching/leading/presenting (and learning myself) a number of classes at this year’s Post|Production World Conference at the National Association of Broadcasters convention. This is always a highlight of my year as it gets me out of the editing suite and working outside of my comfort zone. More importantly it’s fun and I meet a lot of great people.
I may have said this in year’s past shameless self-promotion but I really learn a lot from these sessions. I might like to think I know everything about a class topic but that is far the truth. I always learn a lot as I’m researching, testing and putting together the classes. A step beyond that I learn from the attendees who come to these classes. There are often questions asked that make me think, topics that I have to research later and discussion amongst the attendees that bring a lot of useful information out into open. I’m always amazed at the different levels of experience and the different background from which the attendees come. There are a lot of different kinds of productions out there and most of them come to Post|Production World. Be sure and check out the PPW site as there’s a lot of great stuff offered through the conference, many of them taught by fellow ProVideo Coalition contributors.
These sessions are all part of the Post|Production World Conference. Details on attending, including the cost and different conference packages, can be found here.
I’m not a professionally trained trainer. I’m just an editor who has been fortunate enough to fall into teaching sessions at PPW for the last few years. Most all of the footage and examples I’ll use in these classes are real-world projects with media straight off my RAID. If you attended any of these sessions please stop by and say hello.
