New interviews every week! Join Larry Jordan and Michael Horton as they talk with:
Rob Hoffman, Sr. Product Marketing Manager, 3D Products, Autodesk, Inc.
Autodesk recently announced their 2013 Digital Entertainment Creation Software Portfolio used by creatives in the film, game development, TV and advertising fields. Now that NAB is over, it’s time to take a closer look at this portfolio. We invited Senior Product Marketing Manager for 3D, Rob Hoffman, to answer our questions. He has over 20 years experience in the field, so we are looking for some great tips on how to maximize these powerful tools.
Scott Hamilton, Media & Entertainment Market Strategist, Dell Precision Product Marketing Group
Scott Hamilton, Media & Entertainment Market Strategist for the Dell Precision Marketing Group, has been involved in the media and entertainment industry for over 20 years in a variety of roles including technical specialist, engineering and production management, consulting services as well as major accounts manager. He is currently focused on developing market strategy and partner relationships for the Dell Precision workstation business, including the new towers they announced this week. We don’t often talk about computer hardware, so we want to learn why media professionals should give this gear a special look.
Patrick Donnelly, Director/Director of Photography
Director/DP Patrick Donnelly is launching the full-service production and post-production boutique, Cinema Five Films with fellow director Tim Pumphrey and editor Mark Breese. They are busy creating cross-promotional ads for MTV, Victoria’s Secret, Clean & Clear, and Subway…wait, did you say, Victoria’s Secret? Since life is obviously very tough for Patrick, we thought we’d cheer him up and invite him on the BuZZ to talk about life in the commercial lane.
Joseph Slomka, VP, Principal Color Scientist, FotoKem
When a well-respected company like FotoKem hires a color scientist like Joseph Slomka, we are intrigued. Our first question is why bring a color scientist on staff? Then, while we are at it, we want to learn what it takes to create good color? How can producers manage the pipeline to help their images look great? Join us and discover the answers.
