My DV Expo topics
9-5 September 20 Basic Tech for Producers (and recent Film School Graduates)
In this session, technology expert and DV magazine contributor Philip Hodgetts will cover the technological choices in production and post in a non-geeky way to help producers â€” and others without a technical background â€” make good technology choices for their productions. From formats to software choices; selecting cameras to creating Web video; designing graphics that will work and much more. Â PRICE: $195 ($245 after Aug 31)Â Click here to register now.
9-5 September 21 Using Metadata For Production and Asset Management
Metadata is becoming increasingly important throughout the production cycle–from camera to asset management. In this session learn about the types of metadata in use; how each major NLE (Final Cut Pro 7, Final Cut Pro X, Premiere Pro CS 5.5 and Media Composer 5.5) handles metadata and how we can use that metadata to speed postproduction and VFX. Once post is done, assets need to be management through through distribution and repurposing. What tools are available, how are they used and how do they fit into the metadata structures promoted by SMPTE and other standards bodies.

9-5 September 22 Avoiding Postproduction Nightmares
Post expert and DV magazine contributor Philip Hodgetts details the most common (and costly) problems inadvertently created during production that will be â€œfixed in post.â€ From color correction to audio, and editing to the final QC pass on deliverables, heâ€™ll not only reveal the tricks of the trade that heâ€™d use to save your production, but also explain how you can avoid these costly issues in the first place.

In the light of full disclosure, I certainly expect to be paid but I always deliver good value. There will be some overlap between the Basic Tech and Avoiding Postproduction Nightmares sessions as they both seek to make the technology understandable, but with a different focus to each day’s class.
