2012 In Review
New interviews every show! Join Larry Jordan and Michael Horton this week as they talk with:
Cirina Catania, Producer, Digital Production Buzz
Cirina Catania is the Producer of the Digital Production Buzz. As such, she is integral to everything we do, from booking guests to keeping her eye on our entire industry to figure out what guests we need to book, and what issues we need to talk about. She will be on mic with us during the entire show, which is a rare treat for us, providing her perspectives on the industry.
Ned Soltz, Contributing Editor, DV Magazine
We start our look back at 2012 with Ned Soltz, Contributing Editor for DV Magazine. We asked Ned to share his thoughts on the key hardware trends, cameras, codecs, and interoperability issues that caught his attention during the last year. Then, we’ll ask him the hard question: “What do we need to pay attention to in 2013?”
Philip Hodgetts, CEO, Intelligent Assistance
With Ned Soltz setting the basic hardware scene, its time for Philip Hodgetts, CEO of Intelligent Assistance, to join the conversation on key software trends for 2012. We asked Philip to expand his gaze beyond editing software and look at some of the bigger software issues that we are grappling with.
Michael Kammes, Director of Technology and Marketing, Key Code Media
Michael Kammes, Director of Technology and Marketing for Key Code Media, then adds his thoughts to the discussion as he looks at the trends revealed by the editing software we use every day. Not just the latest features, but how are they perceiving where the industry is headed, and what have they done to position us for it.
Michele Yamazaki, VP of Marketing, Toolfarm
Next, Michele Yamazaki, VP of Marketing, Toolfarm adds her thoughts on how plug-in technology is changing. Plug-ins are now doing tasks that we used to expect our main editing software to handle. How did plug-in developers see the market evolve over the year and what trends can we look forward to next year?
Bruce Nazarian, The Digital Guy
Bruce Nazarian, The Digital Guy, is back after a long absence doing radio. So we want to pick his brain about how audio has evolved over this last year. Not just the tools but the music. He’ll also give us his thoughts on key audio plug-ins that helped to define the audio market in 2012.
Jonathan Handel, Entertainment Labor Reporter, The Hollywood Reporter
We wrap up with labor issues and getting jobs. Jonathan Handel, entertainment labor reporter for The Hollywood Reporter, takes a look back at the Hollywood Guilds, the election, and the challenges for labor in the current economy. This time, we asked him to use a wider view as he shares his take on 2012 trends.
Jessica Sitomer, CEO, The Greenlight Coach
The Buzz would not be complete without Jessica Sitomer, President of The Greenlight Coach, sharing her thoughts on how the job market evolved during 2012 with her ideas on where the jobs are and the trends we need to watch in 2013.
It’s an amazing year-end show – with a stunning group of industry leaders and commentators. The Buzz is all the information you need now to know what’s coming next!
