Following the resounding success of the first Post|Production educational conference which took place during NAB earlier this year, Future Media Concepts (FMC), the digital media training center and conference producer, announced that it will organize the 2005 Post|Production educational conference at next year’s NAB (April 16-21 2005).
The 2005 conference promises to be even bigger and better with an increased number of sessions, a wider variety of topics, Spanish and Japanese language tracks, booth camps for beginners as well as master classes for experienced users, and the same emphasis on high-quality training by some of the industry’s most respected professionals.
With over 160 sessions spanning a broad variety of topics ranging from digital video and film editing to sound design, web design, DVD authoring, compression, advanced compositing, creative case studies, business development tips and production tips, this year’s conference drew 1,250 attendees.
Ben Kozuch, president and co-founder of Future Media Concepts comments: “When we designed the 2004 Post|Production educational conference, we wanted to provide digital media professionals from all over the world with access to world-class trainers and a unique opportunity to network with peers and celebrity presenters working on high profile projects. We achieved all this and more as demonstrated by the attendee survey which gave us an ‘A’ rating for customer service, sessions and instructors. We are looking forward to building on this year’s successes with the 2005 conference.”
“Our partnership with Future Media Concepts offers NAB Show attendees a world-class educational event to complement the world’s largest display of audio and video production hardware to be seen on the show floor. We look forward to working with FMC as we continue to grow this event in 2005 and beyond, “comments John Marino, vice president, science and technology, at the National Association of Broadcasters.
Following the success of the very first NAB Individual Creative Excellence (ICE) Awards, which were also part of the Post|Production World Conference, Future Media Concepts and the National Association of Broadcasters are already planning next year’s awards. The 2005 categories will include: graphic and animation (broadcast); graphic and animation (non-broadcast); graphic and animation (student); interactive design (non-broadcast) producing and directing (non-broadcast); videography and photography (non-broadcast); editing (broadcast); and editing (non-broadcast). Editors, graphic artists, sound designers, web designers and videographers will be eligible to enter.
