CEO / Editor-in-Chief, This Week In Photo (TWiP)

Podcasting and streaming web shows are more important than ever before. Creating a professional and repeatable workflow is essential. Most people operate their shows as “solo operations”, meaning they are both the talent AND the production crew.

This can lead to a substandard experience for the viewers (and lost subscribers) when things go wrong… which they will.

In this session, veteran podcaster and YouTuber Frederick Van Johnson will walk you through some simple ways to create an amazing (and repeatable) show.

  • Discover a workflow that reduces the “heavy lifting” so that you can focus on the show.
  • How to look and sound great on camera while creating useful content for your audience.
  • Which directories should you submit your show to?
  • Taking the pain out of scheduling guests.
  • Monetizing your show

Creating a show plan, and having automated processes for booking and production take much of the pain and nervousness out of that dreaded “go live” moment.

Be sure to catch this session if you’ve ever dreamt about starting your own podcast. You’ll save mountains of time with the shortcuts Frederick provides.

Compositing with After Effects and Cinema 4D
Speaker: Eran Stern

Almost all renders coming out of CINEMA 4D can be improved with a little help from After Effects.
