Brands and organizations around the world are doing everything within their power to create compelling Derick_Rhodesvideos in order to engage new audiences. In his role at Shutterstock, Derick Rhodes, Director of Footage, has had a front row seat for the explosion of branded content videos over the last few years, and in this presentation he’ll analyze what works (and what doesn’t!), walk us through a few case studies of how brands effectively use video, and talk about how filmmakers and post-production professionals should think about working (or not) with brands.Shutterstock



AlexDowWe are excited to have Alex Dow, VP of Marketing at Zaxwerks, return to the group to show us the new Zaxwerks product, 3D Flag v4. This new version is all about speed and beauty and is geared for the user that values his render time. 3D Flag is the fastest way to get 3D cloth into your projects without having to know anything about 3D. He’ll show how easy it is to setup your first flag, customize it, and get it off to your client. He’ll also show some real-world examples that can help with every day work.

Alex’s depth of knowledge and infectious attitude has helped people all over the world discover how easy 3D motion graphics can be, right inside of After Effects, when using Zaxwerks products.
