This is a special July 4 holiday show – featuring your favorite interviews from the last six months as counted by your views — and new interviews from the Creative Storage Conference. (Interviews below are not listed in show order.)

Jess Hartmann, President, Promax

Promax recently returned to its roots in creating new hardware and software for media professionals. We caught up with Jess Hartmann, President, Promax, at the recent Creative Storage Conference in Culver City, California, to talk with him about their change in direction and latest product: “The Platform.”

Philip Hodgetts, President, Intelligent Assistance

One of top four most popular interviews from the first half of 2013, Philip Hodgetts, CEO of Intelligent Assistance, shares his views on the future of Final Cut Pro X. Interviews were selected based upon the number of people listening to them in the Interview Archives section of the Buzz website.

Stephen Nakamura, Digital Colorist, Company 3

This is another of our Top Four interviews from 2013. Stephen Nakamura is a digital colorist for Company 3, and recently did the color grading on the feature film: “Oz The Great and Powerful.” We talk with him about what he did, why he did it, and the tools he used.

Anthony Juliano, Senior Account Executive, Fujifilm
Recording Media

Fujifilm Recording Media was another company at the Creative Storage Conference. They were showing a cloud-based archiving product that they recently introduced for filmmakerse and media professionals. In this interview, Anthony Juliano explanins their new system and how it can benefit filmmakers.

Ross Shain, Chief Marketing Officer, Imagineer Systems

This is another of our Top Four interviews from 2013. Mocha is a planar tracking system, which is widely regarded as the best in the industry. Except, ah, just what IS a planar tracking system; and who should consider using it? Ross Shain, Chief Marketing Officer for Imagineer Systems explains.

Sam Bogoch, CEO, Axle Video

This is another of our Top 4 interviews from 2013. Mention the phrase “Media Asset Management System,” and most people will run screaming from the room. Which is fine, until you can’t find that one file you need to finish your project. Axle has developed a “radically simple” media management system that runs on a Mac Mini, as Sam Bogoch, CEO of Axle Video, explains.

Which interview was the most popular? And why were these interviews listened to more than any other interviews we’ve presented since January? Listen and find out!
