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

Jessica Sitomer, President, The Greenlight Coach

Jessica Sitomer, president of The Greenlight Coach, has almost twenty years in the industry helping people find work. Most of the time on The Buzz, we talk with her in short segments, this time, we wanted to expand into a longer conversation to get into details on finding mentors, networking, interviewing skills and tips to negotiating rates. She has a wealth of information that can help you make sure your next job is a better job. Be sure to listen!

Michael Kammes, Workflow Specialist, Keycode Media

Michael Kammes, senior applications editor and workflow specialist for Keycode Media, spends his days looking for better ways for editors to work together. This week, he looks at SANs (Storage Area Networks) – what they are, how they work, and brands we should consider. Because when the time comes and you need a group of editors all working on the same project, nothing helps you accomplish that better than a SAN.

Bruce Nazarian, The Digital Guy

We are still recovering from Bruce performing at the Newport Beach Jazz Festival — totally stunned the crowd! He has returned to his roots as a world-class musician. Which reminds us, there’s been a lot of talk recently about The Cloud, as the music industry seems to be cloud-obsessed. Amazon released a cloud-based music system, last week Google followed suit. Apple is rumored to be working on the same thing. Why all this fuss about fog? (Sorry, weather joke.) This week, we invited our resident music maven – Bruce Nazarian, The Digital Guy – back to explain this all to us.

Ned Soltz, Contributing Editor, DV and Videography magazines

Ned Soltz, contributing editor for DV and Videography magazines, has been researching the whole area of archiving and long-term storage. This week, he reports back on what he’s learned – both in terms of hardware and the software to support it. As the newly-installed president of MoPictive, Ned Soltz is a great guy to have on your side when it comes to learning about gear.

You can’t find people or interviews like this anywhere else! It’s another fascinating show.
It’s all the information you need now to know what’s coming next!
