WHOOPS! How did I miss this? Here are the notes from the talk about Creating Custom Looks with Transfer Modes.
NYC is always a favorite of mine. I don’t know what it was about this show, but the caliber of people this year was higher/more professional than the last five. Saw some old friends and made a bunch of new ones.
Oh, if you have any pictures of me teaching, I'd sure love them!
Could not have had MORE FUN being around UGA/Biddle and college students. Being around Wes Plate is always fun and invigorating!
And we did one of my all time favorite creative endeavors for film-makers and editors - 15 second movies.
For those that participated - you did fantastic! - no, I won't publish them, yes, your instructors have them. The thing about creating art, is that it's up to you if you want to show it off (or not!)
Oh, and as promised:

Dubai and CabSat!
Just a couple of pictures from my iPhone.
Always a great time being in Dubai. Saw some friends, made some new ones and had great sessions (due to the audience!)
If you'd like the sessions notes - here they are. And yes, you're allowed to email me and ask followup questions!
Had an absolute blast teaching in DC.
It's always loads of fun. The show floor is usually about an hour or two of walking and talking, the educational sessions have the most value.
Here are there three sessions I taught.
And yes, if you have a question about these sessions or something else, you're supposed to reach out and email me!
Gratuitous picture of my parking space at the Fox Studio Lot:
Meanwhile, the last session I did at Adobe Max was on Color Correction.
For those of you who took the class - keep in mind the formula to work with 3 way CC...and the reverse for Curves. And that Adobe SpeedGrade has the same generalized toolset - just laid out differently.
Updated notes for Premiere Precision Techniques can be downloaded here.
Meanwhile, I thought I should share a picture - some six thousand plus people at Adobe Max.
Oh yeah, if you were thinking of coming to this conference and didn't - Microsoft gave everybody a Surface 3 Pro. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with mine, but I'm blown away what can be done in Photoshop and Illustrator with a touch interface
For those of you who attended - thanks for coming!
As I said at the event - NOW is the best time to review your notes. Don't wait until next week. 5-10 minutes per session. Totally worth it.
I met so many wonderful people. A silly selfie of me at one of the talks
On a series note, I apologize if I was a little withdrawn - my father passed about 2 weeks ago and it was dicey if I was going to even be able to attend the event at all.
As always, please be in touch. find me on your favorite social network and feel free to ask questions/drop a line etc.
At the last moment, I decided to jump in and help Liron Golan's Talk about Troubleshooting.
This is his slide deck with a couple of additions
Added were slides specifically about Adobe Premiere Pro troubleshooting (at the project level) as well as a slide about shared environments (SAN)
As always, feel free to drop a line if you have a question open still from the event.
