Burbank Marriott, Burbank, CA

Welcome to ETE 2013! Change is in the seems just about everywhere. In our industries, companies, and the technology and methods of interaction with our entertainment and communications. I know this is obvious... But seems to be picking up an ever faster pace. What also comes along with change is evolution. Thirteen years ago, this event was launched under the name of HD EXPO. At that time, the notion of digital capture was still only a glimmer and so much discussion that film would never leave us. I even remember receiving passionate communications from individuals in the community upset that we would even be discussing HD and digital as it would never arrive. Look where we are today. Where we will be in one, two, even five years? And the even bigger question is will you evolve with the future changes through honing your skills, creativity and tools? Over the next two days, Createasphere has done its best to bring you our evolution. We have four theaters - Theaters 1 & 2 with keynotes, Intenisve sessions and panels (free for all attendees) and Theaters 3 & 4 packed with two days of paid hands-on workshops, with topics such as timelapse photography, on-set dailies, Media Composer 7 color management, the secrets to independent video content distribution, building your editing tool box–eleven workshops total. We also have our Post Production MasterClass and an invitation only Transmedia Think Tank. We are thrilled to have our keynoters: November 6th, Phedon Papamichael, ASC and Jon Witmer, Associate Editor of American Cinematographer discussing Phedon’s latest projects, Nebraska and The Monuments Men, working with famed directors such as Alexander Payne and George Clooney. And on November 7th, Danny Zappin, Co-Founder and Former CEO, Maker Studios in a controversial discussion with Benny Lou, Founder of NewMediaRockstars regarding the future of content, who holds the power and what the next wave of change will bring. Be sure to interact with all technology and gear exhibiting. Many of our exhibitor and sponsors have west coast unveiling and you will see “next gen” workflow, 4K, tablets on set, elegant storage options and overall innovation. Enjoy, engage and evolve and stay connected daily with the Createasphere community with the other 2.5M through Best regards, Kristin Petrovich Kennedy President, Createasphere Special Thanks to our Sponsors

Using the cloud to power complex media workflows
 Today’s media workflows are becoming increasingly complex. File sizes are growing. Teams are frequently located in geographically dispersed locations – even in different parts of the world. And content often needs to be distributed to multiple screens and platforms. Presenter: John King, Aspera, Inc. 1:30pm-2:30pm, Theater 1 Canon Intensive
 As the Director of Photography for the hit television show “House”, Gale Tattersall had the unique opportunity to test the concept of using a Canon 5D Mark II camera for a key sequence in a cramped set for the season 6 finale of the show. Quickly, he and the director, Greg Yaitanes realized that they may very well preserve the “look” of the edge shallow depth-of-field large sensor 5D Mark II camera, and the large aperture Canon EF lenses. Since the success of that well appreciated experiment, Gale has now used some of the Canon Cinema EOS cameras, including the C-500, on other projects which he will detail...

Shooting Timelapse and the Workflow 

Useful Tools for Editing and Post Production–Building your Editors Toolbox

With the combination of high quality DSLRs, intervalometers, and HDR photography, it is now possible to shoot timelapse in ways never possible before, with greater resolution and dynamic range than ever before. Taught by Mike Curtis who has been doing digital workflow for over 20 years, and has been shooting HDR (High Dynamic Range) timelapse for the last 4 years, with millions of frames of timelapse shot. Mike Curtis, Instructor 1:30pm-3:30pm, Theater 3 Avid Workshop
Introduction to Color Management for Film and TV
 This introductory level session covers the basics of color management and LUT concepts for post production and demystifies the subject in a straightforward way by looking at the fundamentals not tied to any particular software. Instead of focusing on math behind the color science, we will use simple nontechnical analogies drawn from our everyday visual experience. Instructor: Igor Riđanović, Finishing Artist/ Colorist
 4:00pm-6:00pm, Theater 3 Avid Workshop
Media Composer 7 Color Management (LUTs)
 In this workshop editors and assistant editors will learn how to correctly maintain the color intent when capturing or AMA linking the new camera files. Attendees will also refresh the correct legacy graphics capture methods and the basics of built-in scope and histogram operation. Instructor: Igor Riđanović, Finishing Artist/ Colorist

Beyond just the non-linear editing applications that we use in post-production there’s a plethora of other applications that can make the life of an editor a little bit easier and often a bit less frustrating. Some of these tools are free, some of them cost money but many of them become very important in the editor’s toolbox. Often these tools aren’t only applications on the desktop but also iPhone or iPad apps as well as online services. This session will look at a number of those tools and how editors can use them in their day-to-day operation. Scott Simmons, Instructor 1:30pm-3:30pm, Theater 4 Anatomy of an Edit
 Most editors have their own way of setup and organization when it comes to a large editorial and post-production project. Others might not have any plan at all. The more organized a project is the easier it is to find media, find versions and track the entire post-production process. This session will look at one method for taking a job through initial ingest all the way through finishing. These tips and techniques can be useful for a single editor working alone or several editors working together. Scott Simmons, Instructor WORKSHOP PRICING Workshops are priced at:

• $25 for one session • $60 One Day All Access Pass • $125 Two Day All Access Pass. Passes and individul workshops can be purchaed at registration anytime during the Expo. 7
