The last week of May 2012, lynda.com cleared out a Salvation Army warehouse, set up some lighting, pulled up some cool cars (including a Mercedes SLS, a BMW 135M, and an Aprilia motorcycle) and invited 130-plus employees and friends from lynda.com and Adobe to spend the day photographing cars, and learning about Adobe Photoshop CS6.
A recent blog from Photoshop.com shares a brief recap of the event experience from Adobe’s perspective.

As the presenting sponsor of the 27th annual Santa Barbara International Film Festival, lynda.com is once again pleased to open the door to four entertainment industry panels that feature some of Hollywood’s top talent from the world of producers, directors, and screenwriters. Panelist are carefully chosen during the awards season and include many you’ll see at the Golden Globes®, Emmys®, and Oscars®.
Moderated by Anne Thompson from indieWIRE, the It Starts with the Script panelists talk about the development of their films, their research before sitting down at the keyboard, the evolution of the script, and finally, getting it to the screen. What’s clear is that there’s no formula, no easy path, and no shortcuts. The writers candidly reveal the obstacles each overcame on the way to seeing their vision realized and discuss how “write what you know” ultimately became their life’s mantra while they worked on their screenplays. The anecdotes range from stories of inspiring life experience, to the process of transforming a book into a film. Panelists include Mike Mills (Beginners), Will Riser (50/50), Jim Rash (The Decedents), Tate Taylor (The Help), and J.C. Handler (Margin Call).
