SMPTE/SBE Rocky Mountain - Tools of the Trade for the Future Storytellers
Apr 14, 2022 06:00 PM in Mountain Time (US and Canada)
The future workflows and tools of visual storytelling are changing. The creative forces in school today will work in a vastly different landscape of tools and workflows from creatives of the past 30 years. Cloud based tools and workflows are just coming into existence. High school and collegiate creatives will know these emerging tools and processes as the standard of their craft when they enter the workforce. Vendors would like to empower the voices of creatives five and ten years into the future by working with them to tell their story today and allow insight into what their, and our, industry future holds.
