When NAB Show canceled one of the biggest benefits of the yearly meetup in Las Vegas canceled with it; Post|Production World. The PPW education conference has run alongside NAB for many years and has been an incredible learning opportunity for hundreds of thousands of media and content creators. Before I was lucky enough to begin teaching at PPW I attended as a student and met some wonderful people while learning valuable skills. Here at PVC we’ve tried to keep some normally to the NAB time of year with our NAB-AT-HOME coverage. The NAB Show itself is also going online for NAB Show Express that will run May 13 and 14.

But what about Post|Production World? We are taking it online.
This year the conference has gone virtual with Post|Production World Online and it’s happening May 17 – 19; 2020. This was announced a few weeks ago and the program has been taking shape since. There are different tracks that will run from Sunday through Tuesday including individual classes, keynote speakers and roundtable and panel discussions. It’ll be very much like the real PPW we know and love … only virtual. Tracks include production, post-production, VR & AR as well as new media, emerging technology and business.
Of special note is the recently added track called The Apple Ecosystem for Filmmakers. This is a two-day track (Sunday and Monday) dedicated to all things Apple for media creation. The Apple Ecosystem for Filmmakers is a free track and can be taken separately from the full PPW Online event.
The cost for the full PPW Online event is $299 and you can register here. That registration gets you access to all live sessions during the 3-day event as well as access to all recorded sessions for 120 days after the live event.
You can check out the full program as well as browse the many speakers and teachers who will be part of the event. You can join me for a look at The New Avid Media Composer or sit in for some tips and tricks for how an editor Moving to DaVinci Resolve. You can also check out how it works for details on how what PPW Online will be like.
