Charlie Boswell Director, Digital Entertainment, AMD

In his capacity as director of digital entertainment for AMD, Charlie Boswell spoke recently at the Sony Creative Software Meeting at the NAB Show 2011 in Las Vegas, where he premiered the trailer for “Giving Voices,” a cinematic adventure about changing the lives of students in Haiti, which he co-produced with Justin Formal. We want to talk with him this week about what’s its like shooting film in Haiti, and the impact filmmaking has on young lives.

Michael Kammes, Sr. Applications Editor & Workflow Specialist, Keycode Media

Michael Kammes, senior applications editor and workflow specialist for Keycode Media, is a regular correspondent for The Buzz and returns this week with some tips for editors looking to create audio that captures the mind using either Avid or Final Cut Pro. And, when you think about it, what better program than The Buzz to talk about the creative uses of audio?

Peter Schlatter, Director, Business Development, G-Technology

With this week’s release of iMacs, plus the current line of MacBook Pros, Apple has established Thunderbolt as the next big thing in monitor and storage connectivity. But what is it and what does it all mean, really? Peter Schlatter, Director of Business Development for G-Technology joins us this week with an update on how this new Thunderbolt technology works and how their products will integrate with it.

Jessica Sitomer, CEO, The Greenlight Coach

Jessica Sitomer, CEO of The Greenlight Coach and one of our favorite regulars on the BuZZ explains why it is so important for us to have mentors. Which sounds great, but the bigger question is how do you find one and, then, how do you get them to say Yes? We are looking forward to her sharing the answers with us.

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!
