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

J.J. Kelley and Josh Thomas, Independent Producers

The last time we heard from J.J. Kelley and Josh Thomas, Independent Producers, was two years ago, when they were promoting their second feature: “Paddle to Seattle.” Since then, they’ve been going non-stop. Traveling the world, making films, and living “the life.” So, we decided to catch up and see what they’ve learned, what works, and what they’d do differently. (By the way, JJ’s now a co-producer for National Geographic!)

Ned Soltz, Contributing Editor, DV and Videography magazines

Ned Soltz, contributing editor for DV and Videography magazines and technical wizard in his own right, joins us for a first look at the upcoming DV Expo – Sept. 20-22 – at the Pasadena Convention Center in Pasadena, CA. DV Expo is a great show for talking to industry vendors without getting lost in the crowds. And, this year, for the FIFTH year in a row, The Buzz is the Official Podcast of DV Expo!

Philip Hodgetts, CEO, Intelligent Assistance

Philip Hodgetts, CEO of Intelligent Assistance and regular guest on The Buzz, stops by to share his insights on new technology that will be shown or introduced at DV Expo in Pasadena in September. There’s lots happening with new media cards, codecs, and ingest workflows that can affect all of us, and we want to get the inside insight from Philip.

Andrew Little, CEO, Red Giant Software

Red Giant Software recently teamed up with the Original iPhone Film Festival to give a boost to aspiring filmmakers. CEO Andrew Little joins us to tell us about the Festival and what Red Giant is doing to support it. (By the way, it isn’t too late for you to enter your film!)
