Join independent filmmaker Richard Jobson on Thursday, June 13 at 10 am PST for 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.
- Richard Jobson’s Wayland’s Song was created using all of the Adobe production tools.
This special Ask a Video Pro session will be followed by a Q&A with Richard and his editor, Steve Sander.
We hope you can join us for the presentation on June 13! Sign-up here for free.

Adobe held a fantastically successful Create Now event yesterday showing how artists and production professional are using Creative Cloud to bring their work to the next level. Thousands of people from all around the world took part. Our own Jason Levine, worldwide Adobe evangelist, audio pro, musician – and a veteran from the old days when Audition was still called Cool Edit Pro – is one of the presenters.
If you missed the live broadcast, you can still watch Create Now on Adobe TV.
Yesterday also saw the announcement of Creative Cloud for Teams - a better way of working together.
