Here’s my anticipated schedule for this year’s NAB Show in Las Vegas. I’ll keep updating this as plans evolve. Really hope to see you there and have a chance to say hello. Be prepared as you just might become part of a #WallyCam! I will be shooting as many WallyCams as I can this year.

Casual meet-up open to everyone! #PostChat is a weekly Twitter conversation about all things in Post Production. This is our chance to all get together and meet the people behind the Twitter avatars. Just come on out to say hello and kick off NAB 2015 in a fun way!
Monday, April 13
Attending the AJA and Blackmagic Design News Conferences in the morning.
Walking the Show Floor – I’ll be around most of the day, I have meetings throughout though.. I’ll pretty much be around South Hall all day I suspect looking at the new Post stuff and might check out the Aerial / Drone pavilion. Will probably be wearing my classic Biscardi Creative Media teal bowling shirt with black trim.
Rampant Design Demo – 2:30pm at Booth SL5706 in the Plug-In Pavilion
“Macro Quality for Micro Budget. How The Simplicity of Rampant Quickly Raises the Bar.” How I use the super easy drag and drop Rampant Design effects to add high end quality and enhancements to micro budget / low budget / no budget projects.
Working Together to Close the Gender Gap in Post Production – 5:00 in N252. Open to all NAB Attendees
I’m going to try to attend this as the topic is important and features some of favorite folks in Post. I have meetings right up to this event, but even if I don’t make it, if you have the time please attend. This panel will discuss the impact of gender equality in the post workplace, strategies for recognizing and un-learning our own internalized sexism, and how we can all work together to adjust hiring practices and erase gender biases in order to ensure the future of women in all post production roles.
Media Motion Ball – 5:30pm at Monte Carlo’s Main Ballrooms (I’ll arrive closer to 7pm)
For me this is the highlight event of the week. Great food, great crowd, awesome prizes and a really laid back atmosphere to meet up with other creatives. I’m aiming to get there by 7:00pm.
Tuesday April 14
Capture and Conquer – 8:00am – 9:30am The Cosmopolitan Hotel presented by Marco Solorio and Suzette Muriel
A workshop created by Marco and Suzette to help creatives better understand and position their business for maximum revenue. I, for one, can definitely use some insight into this. Two of the most successful people I know, I’m looking forward to attending this event. VERY limited seatings available.
Studio Network Solutions – 10:30am – 3:30pm at least, Booth SL12413
I’ll be there after the morning workshop to chat about the SNS shared storage solutions which brings a MAM and full media management directly on board adding more efficiency and capabilities to the Post workflow. And of course, I’m happy to answer any other Production, 4k / UHD, Post, Adobe Premiere Pro workflow questions you may have.
SuperMeet – 7pm at Riviera’s Royal Ballroom
Part Networking Event, Part Carnival, Always Entertaining is how I describe the SuperMeet to anyone who has never been. I tend to arrive on the earlier side and am generally out by around 9:30 or 10:00pm to go have a late dinner or another event.
AJA Video Systems private event – 9pm.
Wednesday, April 15
Studio Network Solutions – 9:00am – 2:00pm, 3:00 – 4:00pm at least, Booth SL12413
I’ll be there most of the day to chat about the SNS shared storage solutions which brings a MAM and full media management directly on board adding more efficiency and capabilities to the Post workflow. And of course, I’m happy to answer any other Production, 4k / UHD, Post, Adobe Premiere Pro workflow questions you may have. I have to step away for a meeting at 2pm.
Harrah’s Piano Bar – 10pm – ?
Seems to be a yearly tradition, I usually end up here with some of the Flanders Scientific clan and it’s an absolutely hysterical way to spend an evening. Usually the crowd and people watching is more entertaining that the twins who do the singing.
I’m out first thing Thursday morning on the way home.
