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

Eric Addison, Owner, 100 Acre Films

Eric Addison the owner of 100 Acre FIlms, has been working in video production for almost 15 years. Like so many today, he’s a director, shooter, and editor. When not working, he also runs the San Diego Premiere Pro User Group. This week, we want to talk with him about his workflow in Premiere, along with his experience using the brand-new Red Giant Primatte Keyer 5.0 plugin for green-screen work.

Jim Hickcox, and Jason Michelitch, Co-writers and co-directors, The Rise of Kenji Gojira

Jim Hickcox (left) and Jason Michelitch (right), are the co-writers and co-directors of “The Rise of Kenji Gojira.” These young, creative filmmakers, based in Virginia, just shot a short, silent film on 16mm black & white film. Using a sound stage with custom backdrops, they wanted to recreate the Meiji era (circa 1870) in Japan; the end of the Samurai era. We want to talk with him about their production, and why they decided to take a traditional route and shoot film for their production.

Jeff Moore, Executive Vice President, Ross Video

Jeff Moore, executive vice-president of sales and marketing for Ross Video, is getting ready for IBC 2011 (International Broadcasters Conference), starting September 8 in Amsterdam. Even more, he wants to encourage the rest of us to attend as well. With over 20 years experience in the broadcast industry, Jeff is responsible for both the strategic vision and day-to-day leadership of the company. We want to find out what’s new with Ross and start to gear up for IBC.

Philip Hodgetts, CEO, Intelligent Assistance

It is always good to have Philip Hodgetts, CEO of Intelligent Assistance, back on the show. This week, since Jason Michelitch was shooting a film project, we thought it would be a good idea to revisit what’s involved in recording double-system sound, where the camera records the picture and a second device records the audio. This week, Philip explains what we need to know to successfully record, capture, and connect audio to picture.
