New interviews every show! Join Larry Jordan and Mike Horton LIVE this week as they talk with:

Jim Tierney, President, Digital Anarchy

Digital Anarchy recently announced a new version of Beauty Box, their video plug-in that softens and retouches skin tones. With all the talk recently about stars who do NOT want to be touched up – we thought it would be fun and timely to discuss with Jim Tierney, president of Digital Anarchy, what their software does and when beauty is fine just as it is!

Philip Hodgetts, President, Intelligent Assistance

Last week, at the WWDC, Apple provided a sneak peek at the upcoming revision to their MacPro computer. Reactions were instantaneous, with one very loud discussion centering on graphics card support and capability. Philip Hodgetts, president of Intelligent Assistance, joins us this week with his evaluation of the new MacPros, and his thoughts on the graphics card controversy.

Alberto Scirocco, Creative Director, leftchannel

Alberto Scirocco, Creative Director for leftchannel, hails originally from a long line of Italian artists. He came to the U.S. in 2003 and channeled his own passion for art into a successful venture, leftchannel, handling motion graphics for film, advertising, broadcast, and environmental design among others. This week, we talk with him about his company, his clients, his projects, and his perspective on production.

Bruce Nazarian, The Digital Guy

A couple of weeks ago, we had Bruce Nazarian, “The Digital Guy,” on the show to introduce us to Lemonade Weekend 2 – a massive multi-day musical event scheduled for 2014.We ran out of time, so we’ve invited him back to continue the discussion on how to plan an event designed to attract hundreds of thousands of people. It’s a fascinating process!
