Larry Jordan is Keynote Speaker at the 2011 Creative Storage Conference

Larry Jordan, Executive Producer and Host of Digital Production Buzz will be a keynote speaker at the 2011 Creative Storage Conference (CS 2011) on June 28, 2011. Larry’s talk will explore “Why Are Filmmakers and IT Professionals Unable to Talk to Each Other?” Digital Production Buzz will be giving away free admissions to CS 2011 before the event and also recording interviews at the show.

In his keynote talk, Larry Jordan provides a thought-provoking analysis of why video professionals consider that IT doesn’t have anything to offer when it comes to telling stories visually.

Larry comments, “Sure, you can make IT storage and other infrastructure work if you’re a major studio, you’ve got an entire busload of IT professionals; but not if you’re an independent filmmaker.” He continues, “Filmmaking devours digital storage. And indies make up the vast majority of the market. Why are filmmakers so determined to ignore IT? Worse, why has IT made it so hard for the filmmaker to get good advice in a manner that they can understand?” His talk will provide answers to these questions.

The Fifth Annual Creative Storage Conference (CS11) will be held Tuesday June 28, 2011 at the DoubleTree Hotel West Los Angeles in Culver City, CA (formerly a Raddison Hotel). The Theme of the 2011 conference is: Content Storage Drivers in the Studio and the Cloud.
