Join Rob Garrott for an in-depth discussion in this video Discovering Educational opportunities, part of NAB 2015: Navigating the Landscape of Video Production and Post.
- NAB, the National Association of Broadcasters, Show, held in Las Vegas is a massive convention dedicated to content creation. If you've heard the buzz around NAB, you've probably heard the latest on 4K cameras, or what's been flying around the drone and aerial photography industry. But NAB isn't just about the showfloor. This year, lynda.com authors Ashley Kennedy, Ian Robinson, and more are on hand to provide insights to Post|Production World attendees. Post|Production World offers a variety of workshops on topics from shoot to post.
Ashley Kennedy, known for her post-production courses on lynda.com stepped in as a guest speaker on Steve Audette's documentary editing sessions. - Here at NAB, you have all of these people that might have seen our classes online but then, you know, we all get into a room together and have really great conversations to make the training that much richer. - Check out video post tips weekly with Ashley on lynda.com. Also teaching at Post|Production World is lynda.com author Ian Robinson, who presented an in-depth class on broadcast graphic design.
- Face-to-face, you know, in addition to just the collaborative nature of being around other creatives, it's really helpful in a teaching environment 'cause you can really kind of tailor your content for your specific classroom. - Check out how Ian integrates Photoshop with After Effects in his course, "After Effects Guru: Working with Photoshop Files." Bootcamp, a series of classes that are a part of NAB Post|Production World give attendees the opportunity to get a solid foundation in areas like "Creative Lighting Techniques "for Any Budget" with lynda.com author Eduardo Angel.
- It's very hard, it's possible, but it's very hard to do a film by yourself. So even if you learn all the techniques, you need other people to work with. And the best place to meet these people is in a workshop where you're all interested in the same topic, learning the same things at the same time. - As you tour the event, you'll come across more industry professionals sharing their knowledge like lynda.com author EJ Hassenfratz, presenting at the MacsOn booth, showing motion graphics in cinema 4D. The NAB Show is not just an event to come see the latest tools and technologies for creating video, it's also a great environment for learning skills and techniques that will carry you throughout the year.
