One week ago, on June 13, director Richard Jobson delivered a dynamic presentation on Wayland’s Song, his sixth feature film made entirely using Adobe Creative Cloud (CS6) applications. In this special Ask a Video Pro session, Richard will describe the whole process from planning through to final delivery, including scriptwriting and production scheduling with Adobe Story, ingest and logging with Prelude, video editing in Adobe Premiere Pro, visual effects with After Effects, and final color grading with SpeedGrade. Naturally, audio editing and mixing were done in Audition. Wayland’s Song premiered this year at the Cannes Film Festival.

Richard is an entertaining speaker with an unpretentious, can-do approach to his work. He creates powerful films with superb production value on shoe-string budgets. He first came into the limelight in the 70’s as the lead singer for The Skids (even if you don’t know The Skids, you probably know their song “The Saints are Coming,” which was covered by U2 and Green Day). Following a successful career in music, he moved into television, as a host and movie critic. He has been screenwriting and making films full time for the past decade. Richard Jobson is currently working on a new film adaptation of Shakespeare’s Macbeth, and a documentary about the song “Bittersweet Symphony” by The Verve.
