Agenda (subject to change) -
6:45- 7:15PM - Stump the Gurus
Join guest Gurus TBA as they will attempt to answer all of your questions and solve all of your problems concerning Resolve, FCPX, Avid, Premiere Pro, getting a job and Networking. And anything else you can think of. If they can't solve your problem or answer your question, then you go home with a problem, but you still got out of the house, so that's not a bad thing.
7:25PM- 8:10PM - DigitalFilm Tree Post Does Ted Lasso
DigitalFilm Tree (DFT) is approaching it's 25th year serving post and production teams around the globe. For Ted Lasso, DFT provided PreVis services in both Los Angeles and the U.K., transported Dailies from all across Europe (to the tune of 6TB per day in many cases) via their secure cloud infrastructure known as GeoPost, and of course handled VFX, Color, Online and Deliverables (including Promo!) for the show back here in L.A. Through a pandemic, two strikes and sanity challenging deadlines, we'll show you how we made that possible - and in some cases, even painless! Nancy Jundi, Avital Shalev and Thomas Galyon, just some of the artists from DFT, will join us.
