New York — The Sports Video Group, along with HBO, is hosting the second-annual SportsPost NY event on Wednesday, February 26, at the Michael Fuchs Theater at HBO in New York. Leading post production execs, producers, editors, graphics professionals, and technology manufacturers will come together to discuss the industry’s latest tools, projects, and design philosophies.
An event highlight is a behind-the-scenes look at HBO Sports’ award-winning reality series 24/7. The team behind the show will share favorite moments and discuss how their production and post workflows help them pull together each episode on time and on budget, delivered with the series’ signature style. The show, which follows two contenders in the lead-up to a major sporting event, took home a Sports Emmy for Outstanding Editing for the fifth year in a row last May.
postPerspective’s own Randi Altman will be moderating a panel on post in the cloud, called “Breaking Down Collaborative Walls: Postproduction in the Cloud .” Collaborating in the cloud has been a boon to broadcasters with workflows distributed across in-house and geographically separated facilities. What can and can’t be done in the cloud, and when is it most useful? What are the economic and creative advantages in shifting workflows to distributed shared networks? How are security and redundancy handled? How collaborative cloud workflows at smaller facilities compare with those used during events like the Olympics.
Panelists include Alex Grossman, Quantum, VP Media and Entertainment, Mike Jackman, Brevity Ventures, Chief Business Development Officer/EVP of Post Production, FilmNation Entertainment, and Art Raymond, Levels Beyond, CEO.
