At the start of this week’s show we get some insight into Adobe’s latest version of After Effects and some visual effects tips, before heading to Boston to “Shake ‘n’ Ba…” er… something is going to shake for sure. The second guest created of one of the key reference points for Indie production on HD.

After the break, we’ll be talking with Mike Curtis. Mike is the driving force behind HDforIndies.com Mike is a prolific blogger on all topics relevant to HD production for Independent Filmmakers. Mike’s been involved in digital media production for over 15 years. He’s worked with visual effects, motion graphics, and digital video post production.
