Premiere Bro Goes to Adobe Video World

When I first heard of Adobe Video World, I thought “What is this place and how do I get there?” I envisioned a planet, not unlike Coruscant from Star Wars, where Adobe Jedis convene and discuss disturbances in the force. Come to learn this year’s Adobe Video World conference is the first of its kind, combining the successes of past Premiere Pro World and After Effects World Conferences into one 6-day Adobe galaxy… far far away in San Jose.

Adobe: How did you get your start?

Newell: I worked at an editing facility in Manchester, England in the machine room, as a runner, and then as an assistant editor. I moved to London a few years later and began freelancing. Sky Sports contacted me to do features, openers, closers, and so on. I hit the ground running working regularly on content for football, rugby, cricket, tennis, golf, and even darts matches.

Freeride World Tour takes extreme athletes to breathtaking heights

Freeskiing and snowboarding tour delivers stunning video straight from the mountainsides of Alaska using Adobe Creative Cloud and Premiere Pro CC

Forget the artificial jumps and groomed slopes of typical skiing and snowboarding venues. Freeriding takes these winter sports back to their roots by challenging athletes to master an all-natural mountain ridge. Competitors start at the summit and must make their way to the finish line, but each athlete must decide on their own route down the mountain. The result is an exciting and unique run every time.

The Swatch Freeride World Tour (FWT) pits top freeskiers and snowboarders from around the world against some of the most beautiful, untouched peaks across Europe and North America. For the 2015 world tour, FWT took its riders somewhere completely new: the mountains near Haines, Alaska. A small town in the Alaska panhandle, Haines boasts undeveloped mountain ranges and Pacific weather conditions that make it an ideal venue for freeriding.

David Arnaud will be presenting the session “Delivering Event Coverage from Remote Destinations with Creative Cloud” in the Adobe stand 7.G27 at IBC 2015 on Monday, Sept. 14th at 12:30 pm and 2:30 pm and Tuesday, Sept. 15th at 11:00 am.

Taking up the Alaskan challenge

FWT produces up to 45 hours of raw footage for each stop in the tour, with deliverables ranging from short web clips to hour-long TV digests. Highlights must be released just hours later, giving editors little time to comb through footage and start producing videos. As a result, FWT sets up a video production tent right on the side of the mountain and using a combination of Adobe Prelude CC for logging and ingest and Premiere Pro CC for editing they are able to turn edits around quickly.
