NEW YORK — Future Media Concepts (FMC) is working with the National Association of Broadcasters to present in-person and online training events for pros looking to further their post production skill sets.
Post|Production World (www.nabshow.com/education/post-production-world
) is a training event for content creators and designers, including TV, film and video editors, producers, directors, graphic artists, motion graphics designers and new media specialists. Now in its fourteenth year, the event will take place in Las Vegas from April 22nd through April 27th, and is expected to draw more than 1,000 attendees.
The five-day conference will feature 250 unique sessions and presentations on video editing, motion graphics, cinematography, lighting, sound design, color correction and grading, project management, content distribution and new technology. Thirteen break-out rooms located in the upper level of the South Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center will host 60 speakers and 75 instructors throughout the week.
An Apple representative will moderate the Sunday keynote, “Editing at the Speed of Thought,” which is set to take place at 4:30pm in rooms N249-N251. Thomas Grove Carter, a principal editor at UK edit house Trim Editing, and Dave Cerf, editor of the independent film Todo Lo Demás, will be featured on the panel, where they will discuss techniques for reducing the time spent ingesting, tagging, sorting, organizing, rendering and exporting media in an Apple Final Cut Pro X workflow.
Post|Production World will also include a ‘campus’ on the lower level of the South Hall, where attendees can view short presentations offering useful tips and tricks.
In June, FMC and the NAB will continue their educational partnership by presenting Post|Production World Online (www.ppw-online.com
). The live, online conference (June 1-3) will feature 60 presentations spanning multiple tracks over a three-day period. Participants in the online conference will be able to enter a virtual class room, view presentations and interact with instructors. Topics of coverage include Avid editing, Adobe Photoshop and After Effects, and Blackmagic Design’s DaVinci Resolve, among many others.
All sessions will be recorded and made available to stream for 45 days after the conference, giving participants time to view sessions they may have missed or re-watch sessions that appeal to their skill sets. In addition, those who attended Post|Production World in Las Vegas will be able to also attend the online sessions for a special upgrade price.
