Emerging Trends and Best Practices in

Branded Video Content

Brands and organizations around the world are doing everything within their power to create compelling videos in order to engage new audiences. In his role at Shutterstock, Derick Rhodes, Director of Footage, has had a front row seat for the explosion of branded content videos over the last few years, and in this presentation he'll analyze what works (and what doesn't!), walk us through a few case studies of how brands effectively use video, and talk about how filmmakers and post-production professionals should think about working (or not) with brands.

RAID Storage from HighPoint Technologies

HighPoint Technologies, Inc. will be visiting the group this month to showcase their RocketStor RAID Storage options for Mac and PC editing platforms. They will be able to answer your questions about their affordable high-performance solutions and about important factors when deciding on what solution would meet your needs.

HighPoint has always been on the frontlines of the storage industry. Their experienced in-house hardware and firmware engineering teams allow them to work closely with technology partners to quickly bring reliable, cutting-edge storage products and solutions to market. Their pioneering attitude towards product development, combined with two decades of storage expertise, has streamlined their production methodology.

The Latest From Zaxwerks

We are excited to have Alex Dow, VP of Marketing at Zaxwerks, return to the group to show us the new Zaxwerks product, 3D Flag v4. This new version is all about speed and beauty and is geared for the user that values his render time. 3D Flag is the fastest way to get 3D cloth into your projects without having to know anything about 3D. He’ll show how easy it is to setup your first flag, customize it, and get it off to your client. He’ll also show some real-world examples that can help with every day work.

Alex’s depth of knowledge and infectious attitude has helped people all over the world discover how easy 3D motion graphics can be, right inside of After Effects, when using Zaxwerks products.
