Tom Dolan, CEO, Routine Filmco

Led by industry tech veterans, Tom Dolan and Andy Schupak, Festival-of-Films.com is a highly sophisticated online platform designed to put a wide-variety of films into the hands of people who love them. Every film offered is licensed and cleared for online viewing. This month they premiere the Veverka Brothers new film, “China: The Rebirth of a Nation.”

Boris Yamnitsky, Founder and CEO, Boris FX

Boris FX is always coming up with something interesting. So, this week, we talk with the founder of Boris FX, Boris Yamnitsky. They are branching out from effects into utilities, and we want to learn more about the latest release of Boris AAF Transfer. This program makes it easy to move projects between applications. So, we want to learn how it works, why they created it, and who should add it to their toolkit.

Jim Tierney, President, Digital Anarchy

Jim Tierney, President of Digital Anarchy, has a new product. It isn’t a plug-in, its an iPhone app. And it isn’t about people, its about, ah, whales. Yup. Exploring Maui.com is a new website geared toward the growing trend in whale watching and photography serving as a centralized resource for information and technology related to the Humpback Whales. His two inaugural products include a new iPhone app and instructional photography DVD series. Jim is using some powerful new technology in his latest effort, and we want to learn more about it this week.

Todd Weaver, CEO, ivi.TV

Todd Weaver, CEO of IVI.TV, just had his business halted by a court-ordered restraining order; however, was this really the right decision? Todd began ivi.tv to stream broadcast television via the Internet; similar to what cable systems do today. His company followed the rules and pays royalties on the programs they carry. However, opponents claimed he was violating copyright laws and that he was not a cable system. While a Federal Judge agreed, this is not the end of their fight. We talk with Todd to learn more.

Philip Hodgetts, CEO, Intelligent Assistance

Apple is making news this week – with new MacBook Pros and an incredible new technology called “Thunderbolt!” Plus, new gossip on the next version of Final Cut Pro. Philip Hodgetts, CEO of Intelligent Assistance, joins us tonight to help us make sense of it all.

Nathalie Spechtmeyer, Editor, Berlinale Awards Show

What is it like, being the only person in the world who knows the winners in advance of a major awards show? Well, Nathalie Spechtmeyer knows, for one. For the last six years, she is the only person with advanced knowledge of the LOLA winners from the German Film Academy. In this interview, we talk with her about how she edits movie clips in preparation for a major TV event. With the Oscars just around the corner here in America, this is a fascinating glimpse into the inner workings of preparing for an awards show.
