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

Rory McKellar, Producer/Director, MindHeist.

Rory McKellar is a free-lance producer/director based in Oxford, England, who’s credits range from directing reality programs to shooting low-budget sci-fi. What caught our eye is his involvement in interactive media – working with the BBC and Channel 4 in England to develop interactive, cross-platform projects to catch the eye of the very fickle youth audience.

Mark Davis, CEO, Scenios

Scenios CEO Mark Davis formally launched their flagship product – Scenios – at the Produced By conference last weekend in Los Angeles. Scenios provides cloud-based production file sharing, messaging, and media viewing to improve collaboration between all the different individuals involved in a production. We talk with Mark this week about his new product, what it does, and why he decided to offer an extended free trial.

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

Michael Kammes is a regular on The Buzz. And this week, he’s bringing us some inside gossip on an upcoming version of Avid Media Composer. Recently, he was invited to a technology preview on the new stereoscopic 3D features soon to appear in Media Composer. He joins us to tell us what he saw, how its different, what it means, and when its coming.

Philip Hodgetts, CEO, Intelligent Assistance

Philip Hodgetts, CEO, Intelligent Assistance, is another regular on The Buzz and joins us to discuss a trend we are seeing on the web. When does “sharing” a photo become stealing. If a photo is posted to the web, does that mean all copyrights are lost? Who has the rights to use a photo posted to Facebook or Twitter? Does any of this really matter? As always, you’ll find Philip’s opinion intriguing.
