Session 1: 
The AICP Audio Spec - Social & Beyond
On the heels of the AICP Broadcast Spec released in 2018, and in light of the myriad audio specs used for the transmission of audio on social, web and mobile platforms, the AICP is working with AES, iab TECH LAB, Ad-ID  and other stakeholders to develop a mezzanine audio spec that can allow our post members to deliver a single mix for all platforms. Harold Geller (Ad-ID) moderates a panel discussion which looks at the issues and complications with delivering audio for the various platforms and what can be done to bridge the differences with a common deliverable.

Moderator: Harold Geller, Executive Director, Ad-ID
Joyce Chen, Head of Production, Facebook
Richard Klosa, Chief Technology Officer, Yangaroo
Ryan Schnizlein, Chief Technology Officer, Cutters Studios

Session 2: Where'd That Come From?

We often like to think that we understand how decisions get made on the post side of the ball. But for most artists, the pieces of the world to which they turn for inspiration can turn out to be unexpected, seemingly disconnected and ultimately, invisible to the rest of us. What completely unseen influences and surprising references inform the choices that wind up driving the work of editors, audio engineers, designers and colorists? Chris Franklin of BIG SKY EDIT moderates this panel looking at the submerged pieces of creative thinking which culminate in the choices artists make.

Moderator: Chris Franklin, Owner & Editor, BIG SKY EDIT
Rob Ballingall, Sound Designer/Engineer/Composer, Sonic Union
Jim Helton, Editor, Final Cut
Pedro Lavin, Art Director, Psyop
Kath Raisch, Colorist, Company 3

Session 3: 
VFX - The Making Of
With more and more productions happening on a shoestring budget and a pinched schedule, post continues to be asked to perform miracles with fewer resources and less time. So how do the top visual effects companies in the country continue to make outstanding work and push the envelope in this environment? Daniel Morris of Blacksmith and Alvin Cruz of MPC walk through two recent projects and show the creative process behind the process while explaining what makes a great spot and how today’s challenges often leave production relying even more heavily on the nimble and imaginative shoulders of the industry’s visual effects artists.

Moderator: Roe Bressan, Owner, Navigating
