Arun Chaudhary, Former White House Videographer

What’s it like, being the official videographer for the Obama White House? This week, we talk with Arun Chaudhary who, for four years, was the official videographer inside the Obama White House. He shares his stories, his techniques, and his thoughts on his role in preserving history. He shares what he did day-to-day, and the balance between the press corps and his work. This will be a fascinating interview!

Michele Yamazaki, VP Marketing and Pluginologist, Toolfarm

We first met Michele Yamazaki, the VP of Marketing for Toolfarm, a month ago. And we had such positive response, we invited her back. After all, it isn’t every day that we get to talk to an “Official Pluginologist.” We want to spend more time talking about favorite plug-in, last minute gift ideas, and get a sense of what to watch for in the future.

Dan May, President, Blackmagic Design, Inc.

Two weeks ago, Blackmagic Design stunned the industry by acquiring Teranex – a state-of-the-art hardware technology providing video format conversions, up- and down-scaling, and conversion from 2D to 3D images. This week, we talk with Dan May, President of Blackmagic Design, Inc., about why they acquired the company, how Blackmagic Design expects to benefit from it and WHY, yesterday, they dropped the price $70,000!!!
