New EditShare Theater Promises Outstanding Creative Lineup at NAB 2013
Karga Seven Pictures, Mind Over Media, Université of Quebec, South Pacific Pictures, Sasani Studios, Lime Pictures, Sprint Vision and feature film editor Scott Hill share their success stories
Boston, MA — March 27, 2013 — EditShare® is featuring an all-star speaker lineup in the new theater area of its expansive NAB 2013 booth (SL9010). Located in the Las Vegas Convention Center’s South Lower Hall, EditShare will host award-winning creatives from around the world, who will discuss how EditShare technology transformed their productions and businesses. “You can always see product demonstrations that show every capability and new feature that EditShare offers, but this does not compare to hearing from and talking with an industry peer who has put our products to use successfully in the real world,” says Andy Liebman, founder and CEO, EditShare. “So if you work in feature films, live sports production, education, studio multi-cam productions or reality TV, you can hear from an EditShare customer who has similar workflow challenges, telling their personal success story on stage. These special presentations promise to be interactive and engaging, and will go deep into the trials and triumphs of how prominent EditShare customers are using the latest tapeless technology to move their businesses forward.”
The EditShare NAB 2013 Theater will feature eight guest speakers including Hollywood film editor Scott Hill, whose work includes Here Comes The Boom, Zookeeper and Evan Almighty; Dylan Reeve of South Pacific Pictures, the producer of New Zealand’s top soap Shortland Street; and award-winning director Emre Sahin of Karga Seven Pictures, the LA-based facility behind smash hits airing on History, Discovery and the Travel Channels. Kim Smith of Sasani Studios will also be joining the all-star cast to talk about the obstacles and achievements of the 13-year-old reality TV show, Big Brother Africa. Mind Over Media’s Director of Post-production Nathan Wadding will discuss how its cutting-edge media initiative with FedEx may open new revenue streams for post-production professionals.
Liebman adds, “Tens of thousands of people in the broadcast industry come to NAB to meet with other professionals and learn about the latest trends in the business. These candid presentations and interviews will be paired with technical demos of the latest EditShare hardware and software that have been designed to support each specific workflow – providing eye-opening insight into the technology and giving attendees a true sense of how they can incorporate it into their own facility.”
Presentations will occur at the bottom of every hour in EditShare’s Presentation Theater (booth SL9010), beginning at 9:30am each day. The full guest speaker lineup includes:
