Ned Soltz, Contributing Editor, Digital Video

No one know tech better than Ned Soltz, contributing editor for Digital Video magazine. As a regular contirbutor to The Buzz, we get to share in Ned’s unique perspective on the latest gadgets in our industry. This week, Ned joins us to share his latest discoveries on color correction plug-ins for Final Cut Pro X. If you are looking for ways to make your images look as good as they can, you need to hear what Ned has to say.

Randon Morford, Director of Product Management, Sorenson Media

In the past, all we needed to do was compress our file and post it to the web. Today, we need to worry about compressing it for mobiel devices, tablets, computers and a mind-numbing quality of bit rates and bandwidths. The solution is “adaptive bit-rate compression.” Sounds cool, but what is it? Randon Morford, Director of Product Management for Sorenson Media joins us this week to explain what it is and how it can solve the problem of too many formats and not enough time.

Sydney Levine, Author, “SydneysBuzz”

Last week, we spoke with the Belic brothers on how they are using alternative distribution methods to make money on their films. This week, we talk with Sydney Levine, author of the widely-respected blog: “SydneysBuzz.” Sydney is an expert at international film distribution. This week, she joins us from Berlin, where she is attending the Berlinale Film Festival, with her insights on how filmmakers can make up to 70% of their revenue through international distribution. Tune in to learn how to turn your creative ideas into cold cash.

CJ Adams Founder/Colorist, Simplexity Digital

Recently, CJ Adams, Founder of Simplexity Digital, wrote an interesting blog on the advantages of creative professionals banding together to help each other find work. We like the sound of “finding work,” so we invited CJ on the show to explain his idea in more detail.
