Southeast Creative Summit

September 10, 2013 — Leave a comment

In case you hadn’t noticed, there’s a pretty exciting users group happening down in Atlanta. Atlanta Cutters has been kicking it for some time now. In a lot of ways I think that success comes down to leadership. They are led by a crack team of talent: Walter Biscardi, Dan Daube, Kris Merkel and TJ Jaglinski.

But now they are taking it to a whole ‘nother level. A major industry conference featuring over 56 presentations from many of the foremost leaders in Editorial, Post production, finishing, and yes – the production side as well. This is a really great mix in a conference, sure to pack a punch in ways I feel other conferences have been lacking.

The Southeast Creative Summit

Southeast Creative Summit

I am very excited to attend this conference where I’ll get to participate in sessions with great industry talent such as The Diamond Brothers, Scott Simmons, Robbie Carman, Patrick Inhofer, Jesse Averna, Oliver Peters, Gary Adcock and many more. I’m certain I’ll come back stuffed with knowledge and ideas, to say nothing of the tremendous networking opportunities. This humble author will be also be presenting at the Southeast Creative Summit. I will be presenting two sessions, one featuring tips, experiences and hard lessons I’ve learned by running a one-man post production business (hint: being a one man business does not equate to ‘going it alone’), the other session is on creating and integrating powerful and effective motion graphics when your time budget is slim and deadline pressures are high.

Now that you are back, I have two very important things to tell you about:

Early Bird pricing

The Early Bird ticket sales will end on Sept 25th, just 15 days from now. That is $300 savings over the regular pricing. I’d love for as many folks as possible to take advantage of the savings. The discount code BMD2013 gives you all three days at $495 through Sept. 25th. It’ll be $695 starting Sept. 26th.

They are also offering bulk purchase discounts. A 5 ticket purchase is the first tier bulk discount and then 10 or more is a larger discount. Folks can contact me directly walter@atlantacutters.com for more details.

Atlanta Creative Ball

Walter came to me shortly after NAB to discuss the summit and mentioned how he really loved the vibe of the MediaMotion Ball and how he wanted to talk to me about capturing that spirit for an event he wanted to create to coincide with the summit. Several lengthy conversations later (LOL) I had sort of completed a massive brain dump on him about it. The event will feature a hybrid design: networking, dinner but will also add in presentations from sponsors. There will also be prize giveaways thanks to generous sponsors.

Note that the Atlanta Creative Ball is a separate ticket from the summit. Summit attendees get a big discount, but the event is open to everyone, whether you are attending the full summit or not.

I could go on and on, but really…just go sign up already! This is shaping up to be a major learning and networking opportunity for post professionals. See you in Atlanta!
