Motion details, my session and an EXCLUSIVE discount deal:

Note: The park in this video is one of my “creative spaces” I go to get out of the studio and regain focus. It’s generally very quiet and works wonders. What are some of your creative escapes? Leave a comment and let me know.

Motion 2011 and The Adobe Post Show are back-to-back conferences coming October 9-14. Both take place in Albuquerque.

Motion brings together the top creatives in the motion graphics, visual effects and animation industries to share what drives their creativity. The format is audience-interactive “TED Talks” style.

The Adobe Post Show¬†immediately follows Motion. It features intermediate to advanced level training in the Adobe Production Premium applications. I am presenting a hands-on LAB session called “The Reel World: Final Cut Pro to Premiere Pro” amongst many other great sessions.

There is nothing else like Motion in our industry.

I’ve been using a really cool new app for iOS devices called Acquire For Photoshop. It’s a really simple idea, elegantly executed.

You know those cool, but often pricey Eye-Fi cards you can buy for your digital camera, that transmit photos you’ve to your computer over Wifi? Well, think of that same concept for your iOS device.

Acquire For Photoshop allows you to snap a photo on your iOS device and immediately transmit it into Photoshop CS 5 or later for further cropping, retouching, whatever. It is a simple idea and it just works. Created by Flying Car Inc. Just $1.99 in the iTunes store.

Disclosure: I was provided with reviewer’s access to this app a week or so before it was released. I have known one of the developers, Brian Maffitt, for years, and consider him a friend. Having said that, friendship does not guarantee a positive review. Most importantly: I have no financial relationship with this whatsoever.
