Join host Larry Jordan and co-host Michael Horton as they talk with:

Brian Rausch, VP Production, Vicon House of Moves

“The Guardian Project” is a short film that premiered during the NHL All-Star game. Brian Rausch, VP of Production for Vicon House of Moves was an integral part of the project. Vicon is a motion capture and animation service company. They partnered with the National Hockey League and Stan Lee’s company, SLG Entertainment, to create a video to launch a new superhero franchise. We are curious what Vicon did, and why they did it.

Shane Ross, Free-lance Editor

Shane Ross, free-lance editor and author of the Little Frog in High-Def blog, is also a member of the Avid beta test team. With the release of the latest version of Avid Media Composer, we wanted to find out from an expert what makes this new upgrade worth getting. We think you’ll find his answers surprising, because the key news isn’t actually about Avid.

David Murdico, Executive Creative Director, Supercool Creative

More and more ad agencies and clients are creating branded entertainment for the web. Since we are trying to figure out whether branded entertainment is the wave of the future, we decided to talk with David Murdico, Executive Creative Director for Supercool Creative, who recently directed a successful spot with Khloe Kardashian for T-Mobile. What are the challenges of working with a non-traditional client?

Simon Chappuzeau, Founder, Digital Film Camp

Simon Chappuzeau is the founder of the Digital Film Camp, which runs as part of the Berlinale. The Film Camp looks at how we can use crowd-funding, that is, raising money via the Internet, to finance documentaries and feature films. We began our conversation with him last week. This week, we want to look at the specifics of crowd funding and see how we can use it in our own projects.
