Scott has a long history in VFX and has worked on many features including, The AbyssTerminator 2Hollow ManBabe and King Kong.


Hollywood for ugly people: Washington, DC.

Kevin Good, who has worked for years in the trenches of political ad work, shares his secrets. It’s a hyper-paced environment in which a very small team is responsible for delivering hundreds of ads with quick turn-arounds: ads that have to stand-up against opposition ads that will run head-to-head on the airwaves. It’s a unique production environment, but one that faces the same pressures familiar to others: tight deadlines, creative burnout, constantly moving quality bar.

We all have to create high quality work, with quick turn-arounds. How can we do more for less with less time? What ‘cheats’ make our lives easier?

Kevin will be joining us to talk creative workflow, production tips, and lots of other things NOT politics.
