(Los Angeles, Feb 7, 2013) Some people say successful creatives are smart and feisty? Aren’t you? So how appropriate is it that tonight’s Digital Production BuZZ has a smart and feisty edge to it? Our guests definitely have an opinion about life in the digital realm!
Michael Cox hails from Vancouver, B.C. and has been working in film and television production for over 20 years. A few years ago, he decided to pursue his MA and in the course of his studies, took an abrupt turn, quitting the work-for-hire-industry altogether when he realized that he just didn’t like “the biz” anymore. Now he is making films of his own and seems happier than ever. We’ll be speaking with him about that and we will also be asking him for his opinion about the state of the industry as it relates to salaries. How many of us have lost jobs to the lowest bidder? Michael and Larry Jordan ask, “Is that a good thing for employers – or does it run the risk of putting all of us in jeopardy as the working world is flooded with non-professionals and prosumers?” http://publicartprivateviews.com
Speaking of training, Paul Babb, the CEO of Maxxon has just announced a full 200 hours of tutorials for subscribers to Cineversity (many of them are free). Dr. Sassi will be posting a full series of behind-the-scenes about the making of his film, “Jet,” and another 54 tutorials are coming up under the series, “Integration.” Paul has more information for us.
OK, you may or may not agree with his creative approach, but Jeremy Danger is a talented and artistic fetish photographer…did we say, fetish? Yep. It’s a living and, frankly, one that Jeremy really enjoys. He just loves photographing “naked women, the macabre and anything on fire.” Since he is doing so well at it, perhaps we should find our more. This one will be fun for our host, Larry Jordan! If I were you, I’d be tuning in. Check out Jeremy’s work at http://www.jeremydanger.com
The Lumberjack logging app is making its official debut at the upcoming Hollywood Post Alliance Retreat, but we were so curious to learn more about it that we invited Philip Hodgetts, the developer and head of Intelligent Assistance, to talk about it. This is particularly appropriate and intriguing for those of us working in the reality or episodic television arena. http://www.intelligentassistance.com
It’s a smart, feisty night at The BuZZ!
